Article source: Adjaye Associates

Winning the competition to design the National Museum of African American History and Culture has consolidated the practice’s US portfolio with arguably the nation’s most prestigious new building. Located on Constitution Avenue, adjacent to the National Museum of American History and the Washington Monument, the museum will house exhibit galleries, administrative spaces, theatre space and collections storage space for the NMAAHC. As lead designer for the Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup (FAB) team, David Adjaye’s approach has been to establish both a meaningful relationship to this unique site as well as a strong conceptual resonance with America’s deep and longstanding African heritage. The design rests on three cornerstones: the “corona” shape and form of the building; the extension of the building out into the landscape – the porch; and the bronze filigree envelope.

The house is situated on level ground and consists of three main axially symmetrical rectangular blocks. By its situation and shape, the house deliberately splits the garden into several parts: front garden open to public view, back private garden and small atria – each such garden space can be designed in a different style. Despite the corner plot, the spatial layout affords the family a good level of privacy.
