The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center embodies freedom for countless enslaved individuals traveling from south to north. GWWO Architect's design aims to describe and materialize nineteenth-century political conditions for visitors interested in truth and storytelling in the United States. As a pioneer, Harriet Tuban catalyzed a resistance movement that reflects a unique visitor experience, building, and landscape. To underscore a crucial place along the underground railroad, lead designers use architecture to draw connections between guests and Tubman's life and legacy. In this webinar, GWWO Architects will showcase a farmstead vernacular that establishes framed views of liberation and enslavement, north and south. |
