California Academy of Sciences Natural History Exhibits

The Green Cabinet of Curiosities

Exhibits at the new California Academy of Sciences give the time-honored specimen box a contemporary—and sustainable—spin.

Imagine receiving the following creative brief:

"Collaborate with a Pritzker Prize-winning architect, evolutionary biologists and ecologists, and the staff of a 157-year-old acclaimed research institution to create a new generation of sustainable exhibition design for a space bathed in natural light and without walls, in the middle of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco."

JetBlue Terminal T5

The slow, viscous drip-drop of oil fills the entrance lobby with an eerie, unsettling noise. A continuous flow obscures the faces of hundreds of victims of tyranny who were tortured and killed in the very building that now memorializes them, a wing of an infamous government complex that sits at 60 Andrássy Street in Budapest, Hungary.
