National Museum of African American History and Culture
Washington, D.C.

Designing a better, more beautiful world since 1935.

Designing educational environments from kindergarten to career—we're ready for a new school year.
Remembering Phil Freelon, Lead Architect of the NMAAHC

The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture was, in many ways, Phil Freelon’s career capstone. He was deeply honored to serve as the project’s lead architect, and felt profoundly connected to its mission and purpose.

On September 24, as we celebrate the third anniversary of the grand opening of the museum, we also celebrate Phil’s lifelong dedication to designing places that express the spirit of community, promote cultural equity, and create positive social change.

Our work allows people to experience the beauty of the world around them in new and unexpected ways.
As designers, we have an important responsibility to enhance people's lives.
