The new Perot Museum of Nature and Science is another beautiful structure that will be an icon for Dallas. Driving through Dallas on Woodall Rogers, one cannot miss the large concrete cube emerging from below the highway overpass. Its architecture is uniquely Thom Mayne and Morphosis. This unique and dramatic 6-story (170 foot tall) cast-in-place concrete museum has a very special precast concrete façade, an escalator on the exterior face of the building, a low, curving, and sloping green roof constructed of structural steel over the auditorium.
