Diamond in the Rough

The Natural History Museum of Utah has recently updated it's score by the hand of Todd Schliemann of Ennead Architects. The harmonious dialogue it plays with the surrounding Wasatch Mountains is fantastic. Relying on a simple palette of materials (stone walls and copper roof), Schliemann was able to sew the mammoth structure into the natural environment with scaled sensitivity. Love it.
