The US Navy has just unveiled five concept proposals for a new maritime museum planned for the nation’s capital.

Designs from BIG, Gehry Partners, DLR Group, Perkins&Will, and Quinn Evans will compete for the opportunity to deliver the official National Museum of the U.S. Navy in Washington, D.C.’s Naval Yard. The project is managed by the Navy’s Naval History and Heritage Command, which includes a vetting process from veterans and the broader American public.

“The Navy envisions a future museum that would provide greater public access and which could include a new building and potential renovation of existing historic buildings,” a press release said. The planned museum campus will consist of approximately 270,000 square feet and include approximately 100,000 square feet of net exhibition space.

From 37 companies that submitted project applications, the Navy selected five project proposals. View renderings of each proposal below.

Retired Admiral and current NHHC Director Samuel J. Cox: “The concepts unveiled today represent a critical step in exploring what is possible for the new National Museum of the U.S. Navy. We will tell the story of Navy history as it unfolds, and the ideas developed by the finalists herald a new way to honor this history by inviting visitors to participate.

“These ideas and concepts show what might be possible for a new museum,” Charles Swift, the museum’s acting director, said recently. “We have a number of steps we need to complete before the final design is determined, and that first step is to have a conversation with America: our Navy, our veterans and our nation, about what we have delivered today.”
