Board’s view of security
Bearing that in mind, a sound design for the facility was of the utmost importance. Space was at a premium during the design phase — there is only so much room under the roof of one former grocery store.
Sound security measures are of extreme significance to all of those involved in the process of seeing this building built, as well. Controlling the influx and egress of people at the center, as well as securing the spaces that will possibly hold Smithsonian-level artwork and displays cannot be overemphasized.
