Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco
Through various forms of narrative, this museum tells the story of the migration of the African people from their homeland to the rest of the world throughout the course of history. Sussman/ Prejza designed the exhibition areas and graphic identity, imbuing the architecture with a sense of the disruption that migration inevitably entails. A huge composite portrait that forms the backdrop of one of the main circulation areas personalizes the space and boldly announces the museum's presence along a busy street in San Francisco's Yerba Buena district.
