Check out this NPR article, which links the changing coastlines, our nation's capitol, and a tidbit about David Adjaye and Phil Freelon's National Museum of African American History and Culture. The museum is scheduled to open in two years, and along with a gorgeous exterior, it "will also have an automatic flood gate. In addition, plans call for manually installed panels, sandbags and special glazing, all designed to protect against a 500-year flood."
