The new home of the Fort Worth (Texas) Museum of Science and History, which celebrates the life and landscape of Texas and the Southwest, is now open in the city's cultural district. Designed by Legorreta + Legorreta, the 166,000-square-foot facility is the area's largest, and it joins structures created by Tadeo Ando, Buckminster Fuller, Philip Johnson and Louis Kahn. The museum can host 4,100 for a reception, giving attendees access to the exhibits during the event.
