Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum Dallas, Texas
Marrying Expressive Aesthetic with Functionality
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum wanted to make sure that every guest who visits the museum is able to experience the expressive aesthetic without difficulty or delay, requiring extensive thought into visitor experience during the design process. The mission is to encourage individuals to become upstanders in support of human rights. The vision for the museum is to create a deep and authentic experiential journey that grapples with the most difficult and perplexing issues plaguing humanity.
"Embrace ideals, challenge reality, participate in repair."
- 250 Seat Auditorium
- 27 Unique Exhibits
- 2 50-Seat Classrooms
- 120 Survivor Testimonies Throughout Holocaust Exhibit
To further the importance of the exhibits, the design of the building is meant to express simple elegance. This ensures that every visitor is able to fully experience the purpose of the museum because the building complements the exhibits without taking away from their importance. We worked heavily with the exhibit designer, Berenbaum-Jacobs Associates, to fully understand the message behind the museum experience in order to design the perfect frame for the exhibits.
