USAID

Merit Award
USAID, Reagan Building, Chermayeff & Geismar

This installation was created in four months with $87,000, which included all research, design, fabrication, and installation. Both the design and the fabrication of the exhibit reflect the client's modest purpose. Although the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is not well understood in this country, millions around the world know the United States only from the bold shield emblazoned on a life-saving relief shipment tumbling from a truck.

Jefferson Library

Merit Award
Jefferson Library, Library of Congress, Chermayeff & Geismar

When the original Library of Congress was burned by the British in 1812, Jefferson sold his personal library of about 6,500 individual volumes to the government to replace it. This became the seed of the huge collections at the Library today. The challenge of this project was to find a means to display this enormous number of books in a powerful and relevant way.

National World War I Museum

Honor Award
National World War I Museum, Liberty Memorial Association, Ralph Appelbaum Associates

In 2002, the Liberty Memorial Associated charged Ralph Appelbaum Associates with creating a museum that, like the memorial itself, would honor those who served in World War I in defense of liberty and country. The new National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, MO, chronicles one of the nation's central epics, one that brought the United States onto the world stage.
