Designed by SmithGroup, the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections and Conservation Center will provide long-term, secure preservation for evidence of the Holocaust.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s new David and Fela Shapell Family Collections and Conservation Center has broken ground at an undisclosed location. The 100,000-sf building is designed by SmithGroup.
The new Shapell Center will provide the archival-quality environments to support the preservation of artifacts documenting the Holocaust, ensuring that the evidence of the genocide will not be lost to future generations. With planned expansion space, the Shapell Center will provide a home for the growing collection.
