As the sun prepares to set on 2016, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a happy and healthy New Year. I am very thankful for everyone who reads the site and follows the work I am doing here in DC. With the site now 10 years old, I am working on a complete refresh so stay tuned for a brand new Modern Capital in 2017. As always, remember to follow on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the mid-century goodness here in the DC area and from my travels. The recent sunset over the Gulf of Mexico in the picture above is seen through the 1960 Siesta Key Beach Pavilion in Sarasota by Tim Siebert, a key member of the Sarasota School of Architecture.
