Join us for a virtual discussion with Studio Joseph!
Studio Joseph is an architectural practice based in NYC with an expertise in museum and exhibition
Wendy Evans Joseph, Founder, and Monica Coghlan, Design Director, will
discuss two upcoming projects in Washington, D.C.: the exhibitions at the newly
renovated Martin Luther King Jr. Library and a new orientation center for the National
Building Museum. The talk will focus on the process behind the studio’s work as well as
the unique approach taken in the design of both projects, which open in early 2021.
Orientation Center, National Building Museum, D.C.: Addressing the fundamental
issues of the historic building’s vast public spaces, the project serves as a new front
door to the museum, providing physical orientation as well as an introduction to the
museum’s mission and content. The exhibition explores broad questions including:
What does the built environment really mean? And how does it affect our lives? Studio
Joseph worked with the NBM to answer these questions in an engaging space that
frames and informs the visitors’ entire museum experience.
Up From the People: Protest & Change in DC at the MLK Library: The creation of
an exhibition space as part of the modernization of this iconic Mies van der Rohe
building presents an opportunity to honor MLK while also highlighting the local activists
who influenced him and who continue to build upon his legacy. Studio Joseph’s work encourages a
dialogue between design and content, empowering community voices to shape the
trajectory of the exhibition and tell authentic stories.
