National Museum of U.S. Navy


Carrying the label, “Artistic Ideas Competition,” five firms vied for a commission to design a new National Museum of the U.S. Navy. The five were: 

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)

Copenhagen/New York
Gehry Partners
Los Angeles

DLR Group
Columbus, Ohio
Quinn Evans
Ann Arbor

With a site not yet identified, it is possible that a final design will look quite different from the present submission.  The Navy has expressed a preference for M Street SE and 6th Street SE, near the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.

Stay tuned!
