Westminster Presbyterian Church, Washington, D.C.

Here is another church from the era of urban renewal in Southwest D.C. The congregation was located elsewhere in Southwest but relocated here in 1964-65, following the large-scale demolition of the area. The church at the corner of Fourth and Eye Streets has a more contemporary design than some of the other local religious institutions. The building is a simple natural concrete structure with several bays of floor-to-ceiling windows and a full-height screen in front of the entrance. The architect was Harold E. Wagoner, who happened to be a board member of the Church Architectural Guild of America and designed many modernist churches across the country
