Where: Guadalajara MX

Our role: Master Planning

The client wanted: A world-class educational experience about sustainability and recognizing the unique attributes of the region for the 200,000 students of the University as well as the 2 million local residents.

The MASi Team including Weldon Exhibits and MET Studio of London developed a stunning master plan document capturing the vision of the Museum Director and the many science advisors. The 100,000SF exhibition and building complex is conceived as a place that connects the practice of socio-environmental research in Western Mexico to science communication and education with the aim of building a sustainable future for the region, Mexico and the world. It approaches nature from an urban perspective, recognizing that for the first time in human history most humans live in urban settings, and increasingly so in Mexico.
