St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church, Washington, D.C.

Pictured here is St. Augustine Episcopal Church in Southwest Washington, D.C. the swooping building was designed by Baltimore-based architect Alexander Smith Cochran, a modernist who trained under Walter Gropius and whose work can still be seen around the region. The building was completed in 1965. Unfortunately, according to the congregation the church is outdated and failing. With recent plans to update and improve the waterfront, St. Augustine’s will be demolished and a new church will be built in the same location as part of the larger redevelopment plan (see parcel 11a).
