Utah’s Natural History Museum is a Natural Beauty

The new Natural History Museum of Utah was realized through a collaboration between local firm GSBS Architects and Todd Schliemann of NYC-based studio Ennead Architects. The design features a towering atrium lined with walls that resemble stone strata. This atrium divides the building, with exhibition spaces to one side and research areas on the other. The exterior of the five-story building is partially wrapped in copper panelling that is sure to catch the evening light. Large windows reflect the area’s natural beauty.

    Wow! I love this. It fits the landscape but is also as it a work of art grew from the stone.
