NMAAHC Feature Project Description:

Location: Washington, D.C. / Size: 397,000 SF on 10 levels (5 above and 5 below ground)

The museum, designed by the collaboration known as Freelon Adjaye Bond / SmithGroup, honors the significant social, economic, and cultural contributions that African Americans have made to this country over the last several centuries.
