The new home of the United States Institute of Peace.

Applause- Peace Time

Applause- Peace Time JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2011

The congressionally mandated United States Institute of Peace was created 26 years ago for the prevention and resolution of violent international conflict. Yet despite its worthy mission, USIP never had a home designed for its use—until March 2011, when the organization will move into its new, 150,000-square-foot headquarters on the National Mall. Designed by international architect Moshe Safdie, the $186 million structure with centers for work, research and education overlooks Washington’s war memorials—poignant reminders of why USIP is necessary. A public grand opening will take place in September. 

ARCHITECTURE: MOSHE SAFDIE, FAIA, Safdie Architects, Somerville, Massachusetts. PROJECT MANAGEMENT: Stranix Associates, LLC, Vienna, Virginia.
