Iconic Building to Celebrate Marshal History
U.S. Marshals Museum
Architectural design for iconic new history museum overlooking the Arkansas River
Cambridge Seven Associates, in association with Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects, completed conceptual design for the new U.S. Marshals Museum. The Museum highlights the 320-year history of the United States Marshals Service. The building, located on an overlook across the Arkansas River, is designed as an abstract of the star on the Marshals’ badge, with each point of the star housing different museum functions. One arm reaches up and out over the river to the frontier, creating an iconic element that can be seen from a distance. The sustainable green building will have simple roof shapes oriented to the path of the sun, with two wings supporting vegetative roofs and the others built of simple bronze colored metal, again reminiscent of a traditional badge.
