Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad, Bethesda, MD

 

Someone could do a whole blog on mundane modern fire stations and other emergency services buildings (like this rescue squad). A few have been done by renowned architects, such as the Dixwell Fire Station in New Haven, Connecticut and Fire Station No. 4 in Columbus, Indiana, both by Robert Venturi. This one in Bethesda, Maryland is from 1976 and exhibits some standard Brutalist characteristics such as use of unadorned concrete and blocky profile, which befit its purpose as a garage and logistics center.
