Museum Organizers Unveil Winning Building Design

ATLANTA (AP) -The Freelon Group, a Research Triangle Park, N.C., firm, will partner with Atlanta-based HOK.

The design unveiled Thursday features a building with two wings
designed to mimic interlocking arms. They symbolize the interlocked
arms of civil rights-era marchers.

Five architectural firms presented their environmentally conscious concepts for the 90,000-square-foot project, which will feature exhibit, meeting, performance, dining and retail space.

A 13-member panel including architects, businessmen and local activists, voted on the design.

Organizers expect to break ground on the $125 million museum late this year.
