Spotlight on Design: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library

Released on June 24, 2020

The Museum presents a free, online Spotlight on Design program, the newest addition to our high-profile lecture series featuring distinguished architects, landscape architects, and designers. This program focuses on the major transformation nearing completion at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, Washington, D.C.’s central library, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and opened in 1972. In this prerecorded event, you will learn about the significant design decisions that were made to update the building to meet 21st century needs, and the challenges of renovating a historic Modernist structure.
