Project, Anthropocene Museum, 2017-2019
This proposed museum is designed, in part, by millions of years of geologic processes. Architects surveyed the initial “trunk” of the cave using 3D-scanning technology, mapping the 2.5 million-year-old space for the first time. Visitors will experience the natural architecture as a space to reflect on the Anthropocene—the current geological age, in which humans exert a dominant influence on the environment.
