When NPR built a new corporate headquarters at 1111 North Capitol, one of the goals for the environment was to make it more accessible and inviting to the local community, NPR fans, and tourists visiting Washington, D.C.
We designed the lobby to be an event space for both NPR and for the community.
Two media walls, one outside and one inside the building, is updated with live news feeds and other content from the NPR APIs.
We created an interactive exhibit that tells the story of NPR from its earliest days covering the U.S. Senate deliberations on the Vietnam War on April 19, 1971. Visitors can listen this and other archival media as they proceed through the experience.
The entrance is over to the left. Around the corner to the right are the function rooms.
