National Center for Civil and Human Rights
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) is a new cultural venue located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta. The design being presented and forwarded through the Special Administrative Permit (SAP) application process represents the evolution of the concept originally developed for the international design competition.
The architectural concept for the new NCCHR derives its inspiration from great spaces in great cities around the world that have forever been transformed in our memory by the Civil and Human Rights events that took place in them. Each of them at their moment in history were transformed into Spaces for Action by citizens of the world committed to making for themselves, and all of us, a better world to live in. The NCCHR will be a "living" Center where visitors experience content through interactive exhibits and immersive activities. The content will focus on the civil rights movement in the United States and human rights issues from the global perspective.
