“The Perot Museum is going to be groundbreaking and breathtaking, and it’s going to offer a mind-shaping experience for everyone from toddlers and students to lifelong learners,” said Forrest Hoglund, chair of the Museum’s expansion campaign. “Our permanent exhibit halls are going to be fun, hands-on and exciting … and our temporary exhibit hall is going to give us room to host the world’s biggest blockbuster exhibitions on topics related to science, the natural world, anthropology, history and so much more.”
The $185-million Perot Museum, designed by 2005 Pritzker Prize Laureate Thom Mayne and his California-based firm Morphosis, has been described by The Dallas Morning News architecture critic Scott Cantrell as “the boldest piece of modern architecture to hit Dallas.” Eye-catching and unusual, the building is under construction on a 4.7-acre site located at the corner of Woodall Rodgers Freeway and Field Street in Dallas’ Victory Park.
Because the Museum’s mission is to “inspire minds through nature and science,” the new museum fully embraces the natural world, such as biology and geology, and the technology and engineering sciences of the manmade world. The Perot Museum will feature five floors of public space with 11 permanent exhibition halls, including a state-of-the art hall designed to host world-class traveling exhibitions and a children’s museum complete with outdoor play space/courtyard. Highlights include an expansive glass-enclosed lobby and adjacent outdoor terrace with a downtown view; a large-format, multi-media digital cinema with seating for 300; a flexible-space auditorium; a café; and a retail store.
