For over a century, the Olympic Games have provided athletes with a platform for greatness.

The 60,000 square-foot U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum (USOPM) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, celebrates these momentous achievements, presenting the legacies and stories of Team USA Olympians and Paralympians to visitors through a groundbreakingly immersive and participatory museum. The design strategy tapped into the celebratory and spirited atmosphere of the Olympics themselves. The design team envisioned a museum that reimagined what it means to be accessible for all.

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