Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Dallas, Texas

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is the product of a 25-year effort by broad cross sections of the Dallas community. The result is a $185 million museum, built with entirely private funds that has become an instant landmark, and garnered national and international attention. The Perot is situated on a 4-acre site at the gateway of Hillwood’s Victory development in downtown Dallas and sitting at the juncture of Uptown, Downtown, the West End and Arts District. The building was designed by Pritzker Prize Winner Thom Mayne, with GFF serving as local architect, sustainability consultant and a variety of other roles. Hillwood and Vel Hawes provided Owner’s Rep and Advisory Project Management Services, and Balfour Beatty Construction served as the general contractor.
