When I think of places that ooze power and authority, I think of DC. Just think of all the buildings around here designed to intimidate, both inside and out. From giant columns to bare-bones Homeland Security interrogation rooms, we have got you covered in that area.

The National Building Museum has a photography exhibition up right now called Architecture of Authority that explores exactly those kinds of “powerful spaces,” but even better than that: after you’ve been inspired by the exhibition, you can submit your own photos to their Flickr group. Pro photographer Richard Ross peruses the group and comments on some of the photos, too!
