Perot Museum of Nature & Science

The Perot Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas is one of the first major natural history museums built in decades — and promises to be fairly unique. Certainly the unusual architectural decisions have been getting most of the attention. Now that the museum has opened to the public (this weekend), we are starting to learn more about how the shape of the building relates to the goals for exhibiting and educating on topics of science.

Check out this quick overview of the project above — and also take a look at the time lapse of its construction below. (Via You+Dallas Media)

Dallas has been watching the construction for quite some time now. The once empty plot of land behind the House of Blues building has grown into quite the focal point in the West End meets Victory Park area of Downtown Dallas. The Perot Museum of Nature & Science has taken shape after months and years of Dallasites wondering just what the eclectic building would become.

YouPlusDallas was invited to attend a project update and building tour of the new Perot Museum. Hear from Museum CEO Nicole Small and Architect Thom Mayne, as they explain the intriguing architecture of the modern building.
