Acres of Site Development

Chris Krupinski

The Project

Constructed on a 5-acre site that was the last available space on the National Mall for a major museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture is a 420,000 SF, 4-story building with unique features inspired by traditional African culture.

RK&K was selected as civil engineer of record, and was responsible for site development, grading, utilities, stormwater management, and permitting.

“The museum's three-tiered facade, called a corona, was inspired by a traditional wooden column from African culture that features a crown-shaped top.”
