I've lived in Northern Virginia since the late 1970s, but never tire of viewing the unique architecture that exists in my hometown, NYC. The name Wadsworth Terrace sounds vaguely familiar, but I don't recognize the building, certainly one of the more intriguing designs I've viewed. Wonder why the convex shape was chosen for this building. Did the shape of the sight dictate the form of the building? Does the shape provide any functional advantages? Who was the architect? Just curious.

Thanks for you interest bearling. While wedge-shaped building are not uncommon in NYC (especially downtown), this kind of irregular shape is quite rare. It most likely was dictated by topography of this area. I don't know the name of the architect - it's a pity he/she didn't provide for windows at the narrow end... It is visually striking, but regarding functionality I'm not sure what the advantages would be... I think it's just more interesting to live in apartment that is not rectangular, but uniquely shaped, although it may present some challanges regarding furniture :)
