A Journal exploring the value of plants and flowers

Shanghai Natural History Museum

Designed by Perkins+Will, the Shanghai Natural History Museum opened in April 2015. The 44,517 square meter museum offers visitors the opportunity to explore the natural world through the display of more than 10,000 artifacts from all seven continents. While natural elements are depicted across the building’s façades (including an east living wall signifying earth’s vegetation), it is a bioclimatic building that responds to the sun through an intelligent building skin and cools itself thanks to the oval courtyard pond.
