This week, the Museum of Science and History (MOSH) in Jacksonville, Florida released renderings for its new building and grounds in the Jacksonville Shipyards, designed by DLR Group in collaboration with SCAPE and kasper architects + associates.
With an expanded footprint along the Northbank of the St. Johns River at its confluence with Hogan’s Creek, the Museum’s new building and landscape design is inspired by the local ecology and hydrology of Jacksonville, bringing 5.4 acres of open space and amenities to residents and visitors. In addition to the building, the new location will also feature tidal terraces providing water access; event lawns; play areas; native stormwater and pollinator gardens; an outdoor cafe and plaza; and more. A sheltered rooftop event terrace will also offer panoramic views overlooking the River and downtown Jacksonville.
The release comes on the heels of MOSH’s inaugural GALAXY fundraiser on April 30, which generated more than $500,000 for the MOSH Genesis capital campaign.
