Project is practice’s first cultural building in US

A museum dedicated to the role of spies designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners opened in the US capital at the weekend.

The International Spy Museum in Washington, DC is the practice’s first cultural project in the US and will display a collection of spy artefacts from around the globe.

The 140,000sq ft museum is designed to act as a catalyst for the regeneration of an area in the city known as L’Enfant Plaza. The museum had previously been housed in a 19th century building in the Penn Quarter district.
