Shapes are emerging. The design of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, with its full sphere of the planetarium, the curve and slope of the future Living Core aquarium, and the rectangular bar-shaped buildings, is spectacularly unique. At the construction site of our new Museum, these shapes are becoming more apparent, and looking more like the design renderings we have seen on paper for so long.
Here the structural floor of the planetarium (the circular section) can be seen, with the exterior part of the planetarium atrium surrounding it. In the background is the large freight elevator shaft.

This is the foundation and mechanical room of the 4 atrium elevators. To the right, framed in the green, epoxy-coated rebar, are water storage reservoirs.

Here is the West Bar building, as seen from an area inside the Living Core building. The café will be at this level to the left of the blue tower crane. The next level will be the first floor of the innovation and technology galleries.
