The Rookery is a milestone in American Architecture. Designed by Daniel Burnham and John Wellborn Root and completed in 1888, its masonry is supported by a steel frame — an innovation in construction at the time that allowed the building to achieve the unprecedented height of twelve stories.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, conceived as an immersive, curiosity-stimulating environment, resides in Victory Park within the heart of the Arts District in uptown Dallas. The cube-shaped structure sits atop a landscaped plinth that undulates dramatically above the entrance plaza. Revealing different views from every approach, the design evokes a sense of discovery and insight as visitors meander through the site.
