From the Architects:

1100 First Street re-defines the expectations of the speculative office building in Washington, D.C. Organized as two distinct but connected 350,000 square foot blocks, the forms of this glass-clad building are subtly manipulated to emphasize verticality and to activate a dynamic courtyard at the center of the complex. Folded glass is used to lighten each volume while allowing the courtyard to bring natural light deep into the site, further identifying the building's main entry. The architectural language that results from the precise articulation of surfaces and edges is timeless, enduring, and true to values of our nation's capital.
