Teaching Us To See The World -- Renzo Piano's Design For The California Academy Of Science

The Renzo Piano Workshop/Chong Partners "sustainable urbanist" design for the new California Academy of Sciences -- across the Golden Gate Park Music Concourse from the new de Young Museum -- will feature a living, green roof viewable from steps up from the museum to the roof level. The two biggest hills in the “living roof” will accommodate a four-story living rainforest and a state-of-the-art planetarium.
