Perot Museum of nature and science
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science opened in a new facility in the Victory Park neighborhood of Dallas. The building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne and his firm, Morphosis, houses exhibits in a cube-shaped structure with dramatic views of downtown Dallas.
Amaze Design developed five new halls for the Museum. Expanding Universe, Discovering, Life, and Universe, Dynamic Earth Halls focus on astronomy, and the life and earth sciences presented from a systems science perspective. The Life: Then and Now Hall houses the museum’s extensive paleontological collection, featuring current and emerging research. And the Rose Hall of Birds features the Museum’s important library of bird-related books and manuscripts.
Exhibits are designed to showcase a mixture of playful interactives, immersive environments, and awe-inspiring multi-media presentations.
Size: 23,500 sf.
