Functional art: underground in DC

Designed by renowned architect Harry Weese the DC Metro is considered to be a prime example of "Brutalist" architectural style. Weese (1915-1998), born in Evanston Illinois, studied under Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, graduating in 1938, and went on to study city planning while on a fellowship at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Weese was also influenced by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, whom he met at Cranbrook.
