Designs for New Mall Museum Continue to Intrigue

national-museum-of-african-american-history-and-culture-designSince the public exhibition of the six disigns for the proposed building to house the National Museum of African American History and Culture  opened on March 27, the impact of the choice has begun to sink in. Public viewing will run through April 16th at the Smithsonian Castle building.

I am please that while the designs are open for public comment, the comments will not be taken in consideration when the final desicion is made. I am also please that all six designs are contemporary, and it seems a genuine attempt is being made to embrace genuine architecture for this important, and last remaining site, on the National Mall.

I can’t say I like all the designs, but I can say they are all architectually significant. Yesterday’s Post included an article that not only gave an overview of the project, but critiqued each of the six designs.
