Archinect – Four Big-Name Finalist Teams Selected to Design National Medal of Honor Museum
The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation has moved one step closer to building a permanent presence dedicated to telling the stories of the more than 3,500 recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
After issuing an initial call for interest in August and choosing Arlington, Texas as the museum’s future home earlier this month, the foundation today announced a shortlist of four architecture and landscape architect teams to enter the design-competition segment of the selection process:
- Davis Brody Bond, LLP and Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (Landscape Architect)
- Ennead Architects, LLP and Hargreaves Jones (Landscape Architect)
- Fentress Architects, Ltd. and Civitas, Inc. (Landscape Architect)
- Rafael Viñoly Architects and MPFP (Landscape Architect)
“Each of these firms has deep experience working with important and impactful institutions across the country,” the foundation’s president and CEO Joe Daniels remarked in a statement.
“Working with the City of Arlington and these world-class architects, we are confident that we are on our way to creating a truly iconic museum that reflects well upon the recipients of the Medal of Honor and all those who have given of themselves for our nation,” Daniels added.
The final selection of the winning team and design proposal is scheduled for January 2020.
