Event Details

*This event is occurring as a live webinar. Registrants will be emailed a link to access the program.*

This event is part of Archtober's virtual Building of the Day program series. Join us for a virtual tour of Louis Armstrong Museum.

The new visitor’s center at the Louis Armstrong House Museum will extend visitors’ appreciation of Louis Armstrong, the man and the music. The curving building, diagonally sliced within, recollects both the rough jazz and the love of lyricism that were Louis’ leading achievements. Daylight cuts in and out of exhibit spaces, archives, and research rooms, culminating in the Jazz Room where live musicians will open their rehearsals to reveal the living legacy of Louis’ music.

Architect: Caples Jefferson Architects
