Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup was selected as the architectural team chosen to design the National Museum of African American History and Culture to be located on the National Mall near the Washington Monument. Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup was among six architectural firms that entered a design competition in January 2009.

The building design will take up to three years, with construction to begin in 2012. Set to open in 2016, the museum’s total cost is estimated to be $500 million, including design.
