Conceived and designed by a team of Black architects at SmithGroup, Society’s Cage is a timely interpretive installation born in the aftermath of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor murders as our society reckons with institutional racism and white supremacy.
Society’s Cage was first exhibeted on the National Mall in Washington, DC from August 28 - September 12, 2020, timed to coincide with the March on Washington. Learn more about the design of the installation by visiting https://www.smithgroup.com/societys-cage.
Financial donations continue to be needed to meet the goals of securing the future of Society's Cage as a traveling exhibit and benefiting the Architects Foundation Diversity Advancement Scholarship through the project, to support historically underrepresented students pursuing careers in architecture.
Donate today to invest in fighting for justice for Black lives, in uplifting the voices of Black artists and designers, and in bringing awareness to the historic continuum of anti-Black state violence.
