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.
