Native American Learning Center

Washington, D.C.

The Native American Learning Center is a pavilion that will be built to claim the site of the new National Museum of the American Indian on the Mall in the nation's capitol. The design concept is inspired by a vision of drummers from all the nations across America joining in a circle around the sacred drum. The drummers are held together within a communal blanket, which becomes the tensile fabric skin of the pavilion.
