Society’s Cage is a timely interpretive installation on the National Mall in Washington, DC on view from August 28-September 6. The project was conceived and designed by the architecture firm SmithGroup in partnership with the Architects Foundation in the aftermath of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor murders as our society reckons with institutional racism and white supremacy.

It is conceived in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement as a mechanism for building empathy and healing.
