Exploring Design

A new piece in Architectural Record explores the design and architecture of the Center for Civil and Human Rights and the background of lead architect Phil Freelon. From the angled facade to the art-gallery-inspired top floor, the striking 45,000-square-foot structure's design is used to reflect the Center's content and enhance its message. Despite how well thought-out the building is, the building we see today isn't what was originally intended. Prior to the financial collapse, the original Center was to be almost twice the size, with a design "inspired by interlocking arms." [Architectural Record]
