It’s kind of a no-brainer to imagine, when given a brief for a ‘natural history museum’, a building that mimics its earthly surroundings – especially when it’s in Utah, a place known for its dramatic rock formations. This kind of idea occurs to about 90% of first-year architecture students. But….it’s the execution that counts; I can forgive anything when it’s done so beautifully. Just look at this building.
