Alajajian Marcoosi Architects has unveiled designs for an Armenian American museum, with the aim of educating the public on the Armenian American story. The project will be located on the corner of Verdugo Road and Mountain Street in Glendale, California, with negotiations currently underway for ground lease agreements.
The museum will be surrounded by an outdoor plaza and “peace garden,” with the building program consisting of permanent and temporary exhibits, a resource center, a theater and classrooms.
Ultimately, the project is envisioned as a cultural campus that “empowers individuals to embrace cultural diversity while speaking out against prejudice.”
The mission of the Armenian American Museum is to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Armenian American experience.
