Discover America's past and its relevance to the present in an interactive and immersive experience on Philadelphia’s Independence Mall.

Six years and $60 million in the making, the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center is the newest high-tech and high-touch attraction in America’s founding city. Designed to guide the visitor in a personal exploration of the relationship between faith and liberty in the American experience by illuminating the influence of the Bible on individuals in key historical and personal moments. The centre's galleries and exhibits reveal personal stories of how faith guides liberty toward justice.

This project has been longlisted in the exhibition design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
