Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture

Space on the National Mall has been set aside for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture for some time. Recently, a team lead by acclaimed Tanzanian-born David Adjaye was chosen to design the host structure. Congress announced the museum in 2003, which will open officially in 2015. The architects have 3 years to turn the winning submission into a workable blue print. Estimated cost is $500 million. Quite amazing really.

A full run down of the architects and the losing entries in today’s NYT.
