Rafael Viñoly Architects is proud to have been selected as the architect of the National Medal of Honor Museum’s new home in Arlington, Texas. The new museum will be dedicated to commemorating the stories of more than 3,500 recipients of the nation’s highest medal for valor in combat.
“As someone who wasn’t born in America, but chose it as my home more than 35 years ago, it is the privilege of a lifetime to have the opportunity to design and build America’s next national treasure in Arlington – the American dream city. This museum will proudly celebrate the service and sacrifice of the most courageous members of a great American institution – our armed services. I am humbled to play a part in inspiring current and future generations of Americans by recognizing these exceptional patriots and designing a building which will boldly demonstrate their deep love of country, of devotion to others, and unity,” said architect Rafael Viñoly.
