Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, 2010, Legorreta + Legorreta, 1600 Gendy St., Cultural District. Bright color is a key element here, as it is in all buildings designed by the internationally acclaimed Mexican architect, Ricardo Legorreta. The giant 60-foot lantern on top of the entrance to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History echoes the nearby Pioneer Tower at the nearby Will Rogers Memorial Auditorium. The museum's interior spaces feature indoor/outdoor courtyards that are in constant visual flux from the natural light that floods the spaces.
