The Newseum

Honor Award
The Newseum, The Freedom Forum, Ralph Appelbaum Associates

A new museum focusing on news, journalism and the role of the press in a free society needed a design that would keep pace with technology and the ever-changing nature of the news. It presents all of human history as, at a time, "news." Visitors can watch news broadcasts be prepared and recorded, are invited to write and edit news stories in interactive games and can air their news-related concerns at an ethics center. At the museum's entrance, a glass globe presents the names of prominent newspapers in their own typefaces. News-related quotations line the wall by the stairs.
