Studio Joseph has developed The Welcome Center and its three galleries in Washington DC, United States.
The National Building Museum focuses its educational efforts on global warming, as a large portion of humanity's carbon footprint is from building industries.
These galleries talk about urban landscapes, infrastructure and architecture, asking the public for a significant commitment to personal responsibility.
The Welcome Center consists of three ground-level contiguous galleries:
- Gallery One includes ticketing and a large case showing objects in the museum's collections.
- Gallery Two displays infrastructure, constructed landscapes and urban design.
- Gallery Three allows displays of building elements emphasising their power and scale. Architects explain how they choose materials based on climate, culture and sustainability.
