Design unveiled for National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta
The Rockwell Group has unveiled its designs for the interior of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR), a museum and research centre, scheduled to open in Atlanta, US in 2014.
NCCHR is a new cultural venue located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta. The Rockwell group designed the exhibition space, lobby, gallery, and event space. The Freelon Group and HOK are the architects of record for the project.
The architectural concept for the new NCCHR derives its inspiration from great spaces in great cities around the. The NCCHR is designed to be a “living” Center where visitors experience content through interactive exhibits and immersive activities. The content will focus on the civil rights movement in the US and human rights issues from the global perspective.
The concept for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights involved creating a space of action. Two walls will be placed with the NCCHR in between that will serve as a place for progressive action and change. The surface of these walls is composed of many varied panels, symbolising various individuals that make up great movements for social progress.
The centre is also designed for integration of future expansion. The expansion areas include approximately 6,500 gross square feet for a future gallery addition on the east side of the building, which will be accessible from the 970 level. Another expansion phase is planned for a 5,000 to 7,000 gross square feet Auditorium located to the west side and will be accessed through the main lobby at the 990 level.
