Do the wave. (Lydia DePillis)

Hot damn, that’s some crazy undulating concrete going up on Archstone NoMa! We heard about the precast panels planned for a 469-apartment building going up at 1st and M Street NE—-which are sort of like Phil Esocoff‘s waves on Massachusetts Avenue—-but they’re even more striking in the…er…flesh.

I’d love to see more creative brickwork in the District, like this wacko thing from Manhattan.
