Modern Snapshot: Mid-Century Wheaton Woods Baptist Church

Some shots from today of the Wheaton Woods Baptist Church located here in Rockville. Nothing spectacular, but a solid mid-century modern church. Or, as this site I discovered recently would call it: Mid-Century Mundane. The site “was created to explore a specific genre of architecture that has largely been ignored. While architecture of the mid-century and recent past have become more appreciated in recent years, there is a category of vernacular building that uses a modern architecture vocabulary and contributes to a sense of place, but is generally not considered significant or as a candidate for preservation.” Scroll the site’s images. I found a number of shots from the D.C. area.

    Hey, Mike! The link to Mid Century Mundane doesn’t work, and I’m desperate to see it! As long as there aren’t a million photos of hot dog infused jello molds on it… little too early in the morning for that. 🙂

    Sorry about that. Link is now fixed.
