PROJECT TEAM
13 years after AMR designed the 1996 Museum of Discovery, the facility was in need of a face-lift as well as additional space. Thanks to funding from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the redesign, renovation, and addition of the museum was made possible. Phase I involved the relocation of staff offices, while Phase II renovated existing exhibit areas and transformed the loading dock into a new street-front entrance and gift shop. The Helix Wave, a kinetic sculpture designed by Reuben Heyday Margolin, was commissioned and now floats above The Great Hall.
