Exploratorium at Pier 15

Honor Award

Energy + Sustainability

The Exploratorium at Pier 15 provides expanded program space and a prime central location on San Francisco’s historic Embarcadero waterfront. Visitors can now experience 80,000 square feet of exhibit space highlighted by a glass-enclosed observatory with an unobstructed view of the San Francisco Bay. The building's rehabilitation of an existing historic structure results in what is the country's largest net zero energy museum.
