Case Studies, Exteriors | July 1, 2008 | By:

Polshek Partnership Architects and Gillies Stransky Brems Smith Architects recently unveiled their design for the new Utah Museum of Natural History to be built on the edge of the University of Utah campus overlooking the Great Salt Lake. Registered as a LEED Gold project, the museum design will incorporate sustainable strategies that include minimal disruption of the site, retention of stormwater through green roofs and detention lakes below the parking areas, along with many more strategies. The museum is scheduled for completion in early 2011.
