McCormick Freedom Museum

The design features a central two-story atrium space that houses a defining work of art as its focal point, for which an international competition was held.  The architecture of the space evolves from a blending of the exhibit experience sequence with the expression of the strong building structure, juxtaposed with a graceful elliptical opening.

The curving ramp responds to existing building level changes and provides a unique location for an exhibit media wall that includes dozens of flat-panel screens and serves as an introduction to the museum.  The curve also evokes the spirit of freedom to which the museum is dedicated.  The interplay of all the main elements of the space conveys a balance between our desire for liberty and our need for security.
