Project Description

Campaigns of Courage Pavilion: Three exhibit pavilions which, together, portrays all campaigns of the war on land, sea and air, honors each branch of the U.S. military, and tells the powerful story of life after the war. This building consists of pre-cast, metal panels, and curtain-wall clad shell, a bridge connecting to the theater pavilion and future ground connections to the Liberation Pavilion. With a unique architectural look, the building includes angled exterior walls said to resemble the cliffs of Normandy. The building has three elevated concrete decks and interior features include a grand stainless monumental staircase with glass and metal railings, two airplanes hanging over the atrium and museum spaces and metal grille ceilings and rails.

Hall of Democracy: The center for education, outreach, publishing, research and new media activities at the Museum. The pavilion houses a special exhibits gallery; a WWII Media and Education Center with production studios and broadcast capabilities for the editing, production and dissemination of the Museum’s digital assets and programs; the Institute for the Study of War and Democracy; and a stunning library which supports research and public engagement.
