Up on the Grassy, Rocky Roof of the Perot Museum of Nature & Science at Victory Park

About a month ago we showed off 2005 Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne's model for the $185-million Perot Museum of Nature & Science at Victory Park, scheduled to open in September 2013. But it's never too early for the Dallas City Council to get a sneak peek at the landscape plan for the facility, which will come complete with a plinth roof covered in native grasses and rocks. The slide show's a bit bare bones, but it does give you some idea of what the place will look like -- which is to say, an urbanized blackland prairie ... or, Life After People.
