The innumerable volumes of works present in this towering pillar symbolize the never-ending discussion about the famed American president.
Placed in the lobby of Ford’s Theatre Center for Education and Leadership, it makes for an excellent introductory piece to the new museum dedicated to Lincoln’s history. Fascinatingly, it is adjacent to where Lincoln died at the Petersen House. The museum is currently under construction and set to open later this month, in time for President’s Day.

The folded façade generates multiple visual directions from inside to the streets bellow, and also from the highest floors to the landscape that surrounds the city, a highly effective mechanism for the incorporation of urban vitality inside the building.
