Inquire

Peter Steinhauer is an artist-photographer. His work focuses primarily on architecture within urban landscapes in addition to man-made structures and natural panoramas.

Steinhauer's Metro documents the Brutalist design and neoclassical architecture and movement inside Washington D.C.’s Metro. Designed by celebrated architect Harry Weese, the system first opened in 1976 and has now grown to be a 118-mile system, with 91 stations across two states and the District of Columbia.

In his design, Weese promotes extensive use of exposed concrete, granite, and repetitive design motifs. To this day, the DC Metro is one of the most uniquely constructed systems in the world and is one of the busiest underground transit systems in the US. Here, Steinhauer’s photography re-introduces us to the architectural design elements of this uniquely designed Metro system.
