The Architecture of a Vision: Designing the Smithsonian’s Newest Museum

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is expected to open in 2015, leaving the National mall with a new landmark. Its design will consist of a bronze-coated structure representing a crown which also provides a thematic framework for the interior of the building. The museum’s director, Lonnie G. Bunch, along with architects David Adiave and Philip Freelon of Freelon Adjaye Bond/ Smith Group, will discuss the development of the design as well as the creative and technical processes that translate a museum’s mission into a physical identity. They will also offer a visual preview of the building.
