THE HAPPY FAMILY SCULPTURE
One of the most smile-inducing components of the new Fort Worth Museum School isn’t an artifact, reptile or colorful painting. Rather it’s “The Happy Family,” a site-specific metal sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist Barrett DeBusk, situated in the middle of the Museum School Courtyard.
A SUSTAINABLE BUILDING
“This is a 100-year building,” said Architect Ricardo Legorreta. Indeed, the architect and builders of the new Fort Worth Museum of Science and History worked hard to incorporate sustainable elements into the building’s construction.
THE URBAN LANTERN
One of the most stunning features of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s new building is the “Urban Lantern,” an element common to structures designed by architects Legorreta + Legorreta. As a beacon of learning, and as the anchor of the new Museum campus, the Lantern serves as the main entrance to the 166,000-square-foot building.
