Natural History Museum's Expo-Adjacent North Campus Opens Soon

New, 13 comments

Photos by Elizabeth Daniels Last week, after getting our fill of dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum's new Dinosaur Hall, we checked in on the museum's under-construction and Expo Line-adjacent North Campus. The first elements of the North Campus's overhaul--a two story parking structure, a whale-skeleton-inspired pedestrian bridge, and a transition garden--are scheduled to be open by the end of the summer. A "stramphitheater"--stairs/ramps/amphitheater--is also taking shape between the parking structure and pedestrian bridge. The Campus was designed by landscape architects Mia Lehrer + Associates and architects CO Architects, and it'll eventually cover three and a half acres and include interactive exhibits and the glassy, three-story Otis Booth Pavilion. The NHM reopened its 1913 building last summer and plans to look quite fresh by its 2013 centennial.
