Abstract:

The founding and realisation of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture is a milestone in the history of the recognition of black culture in America. For David Adjaye, the commission to design this iconic building is one of the defining projects in his young career as an architect. The film focuses on the question of how Adjaye deals with the challenge of building one of the most important buildings in African American history. What role does "African" play in the idea of "African American?" And in what way could the concept for this museum serve as a blueprint for museums in the 21st century? In the course of discussing these important questions, the film explores some of the fundamental sources of inspiration of Adjaye s visionary work.
