A Purposeful Place for Education and Contemplation

The primary purpose of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is to educate visitors about the history of the Holocaust and to advance human rights in combating prejudice, hatred, and indifference.

Our goal was to create a holistically cohesive experience from the moment visitors see the museum from afar to the time they leave. The acoustic design followed that design goal to make sure speech intelligibility was clear and that the exhibits support deep contemplation.

One important factor in the acoustic design was the proximity of the project to the DART rail line. We focused on design for sound isolation as well as noise and vibration control to protect the quiet and reflective atmosphere within the museum.
