Museum of Science and Industry Wayfinding

This Way to Science

Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry needs to inspire a new generation of scientists. But first, it needs to show them the way through a colossal space.

If you ever wondered how 27 million people could have attended the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, then perhaps you haven’t set foot inside the Museum of Science and Industry. Housed in Burnham and Root’s Palace of Fine Arts—the only one of approximately 200 World’s Fair structures still standing—it encompasses 1.3 million square feet.  


Perkins+Will (Chicago) announced that its New York office has been selected as a design advisor to the Task Force for Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "Mayor's Carbon Challenge" program for commercial offices.

The program includes 10 global corporations (including JetBlue, Google, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and JP Morgan chase, among others) that have accepted the challenge to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions by up to 40% over the next 10 years.
