Every detail of our new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science has been thoughtfully designed for all manners of form and function. The building itself is an exhibit of sorts, from its state-of-the-art communications and energy-conservation technology, to its indoor and outdoor exhibits in keeping with south Florida’s unique climate and diversity. Grimshaw Architects, the design architects for our new Museum project, have been honored with over 150 international design awards, including the prestigious Lubetkin Prize, and one of their major projects, New York City’s MTA Fulton Center has emerged from the ground and will be opening in June 2014. Organized around a grand civic space at its core and topped by a glass oculus, it will link eight subway lines and handle an average of 275,000 passengers per day in one of New York City’s busiest underground transit interchanges. With our Museum team working with the Grimshaw team, it is exciting to imagine how the new three-story, 250,000-square-foot Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science will inspire learning and stimulate the imagination.
