Museum of Liverpool

Designed by Copenhagen-based 3XN, the new museum is a bold structure located on the Mersey River in Liverpool. Inside the Museum of Liverpool features exhibitions on the history of the port town and its influence on the world. Energy efficiency played a huge role in the building's design, which includes the use of a ‘trigeneration’ system to create heat, electricity and cooling in one integrated process as a way of reducing carbon emissions.

Jeongok Prehistory Museum in Korea

This shiny serpentine museum in Korea is dedicated to the prehistory of the area and a sort of time capsule to explore early man. Designed by French firm, X-TU Architects, the Jeongok Prehistory Museum features a high performance double-walled facade to energy efficiently maintain a constant interior climate.

Utah Natural History Museum

Dedicated to the natural history, flora, fauna, minerals and dinosaurs found in the region, the Utah Natural History Museum is an abstract interpretation of Utah’s landscape. Located in Salt Lake City and designed by Todd Schliemann and New York City-based Ennead Architects, the museum is aiming for LEED Gold certification, features a green roof, solar system and a copper facade sourced only miles away.
