The California Academy of Sciences celebrates a new kind of museum experience — one that is dynamic, thriving, interconnected and focused on the natural world. The building is uniquely a natural history museum, aquarium, planetarium, and four-story rainforest, all housed under one living roof. Clearstory provided comprehensive way-finding design services for the LEED Platinum Certified project. The signage design is inspired by the established architectural vocabulary and the educational and environmentally sustainable culture of the Academy.
