Celebrating the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture!

On September 24th, the National Museum of African American History and Culture opened its doors with a ceremony befitting this historic moment.The museum, designed by the collaboration known as Freelon Adjaye Bond / SmithGroup JJR—for which Perkins+Will’s Phil Freelon served as lead architect—honors the significant social, economic, and cultural contributions that African Americans have made to this country over the last several centuries.

“As an African American, and as the lead architect on this project, to know that this vision has become a reality on the National Mall, right in the heart of our nation’s capital and within steps of the Washington Monument, is to realize a magnificent accomplishment,” says Freelon, managing and design director for Perkins+Will’s North Carolina practice. “It’s difficult to find the right words to express my pride—not just in our contributions to the design of this museum, but also in all that the museum represents, and in all that the museum strives to do.”
