Museums do more than allow us to engage with history and art. They are forms in and of themselves, which, to varying degrees, enable and propagate missions and legacies through design and architecture. Perhaps no museum in recent history has created as much excitement or reverberated through culture as much as the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC, which, just in time for Black History Month, was awarded the Beazley Design of the Year Award presented by London’s Design Museum.
