California Academy of Sciences

Nearly 10 years ago, the California Academy of Sciences embarked on a remarkable journey, launching the largest museum rebuilding project in more than a century and reinventing the traditional natural science museum along the way. Today, the new Academy building stands as an example of the power and potential of sustainable architecture. Expected to receive the highest possible rating from the U.S. Green Building Council, it employs a wide range of energy-saving technologies, makes creative use of recycled materials, and blends seamlessly into the surrounding parkland. This innovative building - a perfect expression of the Academy's mission to explore, explain, and protect the natural world - is a feat of complex engineering and sophisticated site planning.
