The competition entries for the National Museum of African American History in Washington, D.C., are currently on display at the Smithsonian Institution Building.  Adam Fagen has a Flickr set of photographs of the exhibition here.

The entrants included designs from Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Moshe Safdie, Norman Foster, David Adjaye, Antoine Predock, and Pei Cobb Freed. The model of above is the DS+R project called “Stone Cloud.” David Adjaye, the Tanzanian born, London based architect, was recently named the winning entrant (two images below via NYTimes, last one by Adam Fagen).
