The Museum of the American Revolution has been recognized with an Award of Merit in the Cultural/Worship category of the 2017 Engineering News-Record
Mid-Atlantic Best Projects competition. RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern
, Alexander P. Lamis
, and Kevin M. Smith
led the design effort.
Anchoring the eastern end of Independence National Historical Park, the Museum introduces visitors to the American Revolution with its extraordinary collection of historical artifacts and contemporary interpretations demonstrating the continued worldwide importance of the Revolution. The Museum's restrained Classicism complements its many neighbors of national historical importance, including Independence Hall, Carpenters' Hall, the First Bank of the United States, and the Merchants Exchange; at the same time the building stands as a new, identifiable icon for historic Philadelphia.
