Summary

Pier 15, San Francisco

The new Exploratorium @ Piers 15 and 17 opened on the Embarcadero after an ambitious two-year construction project.  The technically complex project involved underwater repairs to thousands of dilapidated piers, renovation of an historic pier shed into exhibit and learning spaces, and construction of a new crystalline observatory building. The Exploratorium spans the length of three football fields over the water.  It features radiant heated floors and is the world’s largest net zero energy museum.
