Date: 2000

Attached to the Museum of Natural History in NYC, the new Rose Center replaced the Hayden Planetarium previously there. The new center features a large spherical structure which acts as a theater space. Along the perimeter of the cubic space are platforms featuring exhibits and views to the central space below. The exterior is supported with a series of columns and associated girders and beams. With full height low-e glazing, this skeleton system allows light to enter the space while reducing solar gain in the main space
