What the Heck is This Building?

We've been having car troubles this week. Eric's car has been in the shop since Tuesday night when it conked out on his way home from work. This morning I took him to the Metro because I needed the car today. After dropping him off (at the Kiss and Ride--I just love the name!) I went around the parking lot and came out on a side of the station I'd never been on. Believe me, if I'd come out this way before, I'd have remembered. Get a load of this building:

This is the U.S. Census Bureau in Suitland, Maryland, about 13 miles from Washington, DC. It's one of the most bizarre buildings I've ever seen!

At first glance, it looks like warped wood on the walls, but it's really curved pieces of metal. Over the whole building. And the windows.

And to think I actually know 2 people who work in this building every day! I think I'd go quietly out of my mind.
