Project Description

The Chicago Metropolitan Museum and Library of African History Foundation is seeking to build Museum Africa, a 300,000 square foot building (both museum and library. The building will comprise of two campuses, the Chicago Metropolitan Museum and the Library of African History/Kush Library. We are seeking to house the world's largest collection of primary source documents on continental African history.

Our mission is to provide public access and a centralized location for conducting research on individual African cultures.

The Executive Director of the Foundation was able to locate a space to house the museum; however that space is no longer available for this purpose. The museum is required at this time to choose a new site and develop new architectural drafts for the space chosen.
