Moshe Safdie Unveils Five-Pointed Plan for War Hero Museum

If the National Medal of Honor Museum opens as planned in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, in the first quarter of 2018, it will be one of the few institutions to celebrate the nearly 3,500 winners of the United States military's highest honor. New renderings released by the office of Moshe Safdie (he of Habitat 67 fame) show a light-filled pentagonal structure of concrete and steel, composed of five connected galleries, a nod to the five-pointed-star form of the actual medal. The museum—which will house 10 exhibition halls, educational spaces, and memorials—is being designed in collaboration with Gallagher & Associates.
