Freelon Adjaye Bond to Design MAAHC

The Smithsonian announced Tuesday [April 14th] that Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup [a collaboration between The Freelon Group, Adjaye Associates, and Davis Brody Bond] has been chosen from a group of six architects to design the National Museum of African American History and Culture - to be located in one of the last remaining sites on the National Mall. The project was chosen over those submitted by Diller Scofidio & Renfro, Norman Foster, Devrouax & Purnell and Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects, Moody Nolan and Antoine Predock, and Moshe Safdie and Associates - and will hopefully be on track for a 2015 opening.


Throughout the history of African-American struggle and celebration, there are these moments of praise,” he said. “It’s for us a deeply spiritual and powerful culture.

- David Adjaye on the the project

The building looks to be a metallic crown-like structure, sitting atop a stone base [complete with roof garden, seen below] - with skylights illuminating the interior, creating a sense of openness in the lobby spaces.


I have to say, I was pleasently surprised that this team won - not because of my feelings towards the design, but because I just assumed that this project being in Washington would mean that some Pei Cobb looking project would win, regardless of the ‘competition’. But I mean, who doesn’t like Adjaye’s work? The man is on some 9th dan level status, and this is no exception.

It seems to me that the project functions as an ‘object building’ [like every-other building in DC], without being in-your-face about it’s presence necessarily - or being architecture for architecture’s sake. GO check out the other entries, and maybe you’ll feel me - I’m a fan of Diller Scofidio & Renfro, but give me a break [plus, I’m not letting them off the hook for Boston’s ICA - that thing is not what everyone made it out to be].


I’m interested to see what’s going on with the patterning of this ‘crown’ thing - and of this undulating wooden [I think?] sculptural ceiling in the lobby. That, and maybe a more detailed explanation as to what makes this ‘African American’? I’m not sure it’s important that that plays a role in the actual form / appearance of the building - I’d just like to know how / in what ways it drove the design process.

Where urban blessing betong, glass, iron, steel ... So, you want to do in the interior space to create feelings of comfort, but no less luxurious. It's easy if you combine with bamboo furniture - a representative of the skin, gently.

Nearly two thousand years with the changing times and changes, may create now landscape tank has many other ancient. Heard, before the path to the beautiful pagoda. Through the three due to the wide beach and located between two long rows pond in the shade of ripe coffee rhythm class, the type of home she has found in Hoi An and some other places, pedestrian offering incense to the pagoda to worship Buddha . This is the pagoda was built early in Vietnam, right from the first centuries after Christ II.

One of the impressive hard to forget where it is the colossus worship. Tuong Van prestige of France, taciturn, color co-hun. Beautiful face with dark mole to the proposal on the image to her impressive dancer, home to West Trúc where Cội source of good ideas in need, from Germany's - Bi - Hi - Xả.

Designs the girdle ong oily, vành tissue on the diseased and soft, the clothes reaper three new range with seven new fraud Thuot tha ... Father he was very fine, delicate profits when setting the worship Kim Dong Ngoc Nu. Here, we encountered a beautiful flower in the Buddhist idea of the network, a form of spiritual culture imported, with spiritual, mental common, pure-minded. We also see here again a clear proof for the more cultural variables, the capitalization value of the spirit when you enter the.

On tank, the Thuan Thanh, as our bathroom is in the air over the old mark by more floors historical levels - culture. Here, urban stronghold Lau past the line Thien Duc Oanh pad the list of Hai Ba Trung start against the invasion of East Hán the first century. This river bookmark Tố of poetry to "rivers of flowing Dau, poems that lơ Lau luy to stop again." Here again, the land Rich Keo - with stories of her lass two modest, beautiful and become nhiếp y Lan clever, supervising the country, helped the king đánh vision. But there is Pen Thap Ba Buddha with thousand eyes, thousand famous hand; is a subtle East, where the soul of the beginning any circumstances always smiling on the gold paper messages. Moreover, the river road, "In the past white sand flat glass" time is almost as smooth had passed the historic wharves shore. And from the tank, we can turn horizontally in Thien Thai mountain or river on the other side of the road, offering incense to the King Ly life in there.

History has confirmed the location of the tank in cultural life, spiritual nation. Today, the tank is the State and the Church Buddhist Vietnam interested restored, to create respect worthy as "centers of Buddhist Vietnam" many centuries.
