MOSH releases exterior renderings for new museum

May 10th, 2022 · Leave a Comment

The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) has released exterior renderings for its new Museum on the Northbank, created by DLR Group in partnership with kasper architects + associates and SCAPE.

Seeking to expand its capacity to serve more students and visitors, MOSH’s new museum will relocate to the Jacksonville Shipyards on the Northbank of the St. Johns River. Designed by award-winning global design firm DLR Group, the building concept is inspired by the movement and flow of the water that has played such an important role in the history of Jacksonville.

Rising in terraces from the river up toward the city, a spiral circulation path links the lower level to a roof terrace above. The circulation path fluidly connects three themed exhibition spaces that are central to the MOSH mission: the Natural Ecosystem, the Cultural Ecosystem and the Innovation Ecosystem. A sheltered rooftop event terrace overlooking the river offers a 360-degree view of Downtown Jacksonville, including TIAA Bank Field and the Southbank skyline.

The release comes on the heels of MOSH’s inaugural GALAXY fundraiser, presented by Warren Equity Partners and Dream Finders Homes. The sold-out event recently drew 500+ Museum supporters to the black-tie gala, which generated more than $500,000 for the MOSH Genesis capital campaign.
