Malcolm Grear Designers developed the donor recognition sign system, including a large glass wall in Science Alley that recognizes the Center's founding donors. The wall engages people using an optical phenomenon — the space behind the donor names becomes frosted when viewed straight-on and becomes clear when viewed from an angle. The Center's numerous contributors are acknowledged throughout the public, education, and gallery spaces.

Located in downtown Hartford, the Connecticut Science Center is scheduled to open June 12. The center's 150 exhibits housed in the 10 theme based galleries are designed for older children and teens. The exhibits will be hands-on learning experiences with the goal of promoting science literacy.
The striking building featuring glass exterior walls and a unique "magic carpet" roof with a garden was designed by the Argentinian based architect Cesar Pelli, who has completed over 100 major commissions worldwide including the World Financial Center in New York, the Petronas Towers in Malaysia, and the International Finance Center in Hong Kong.
Malcolm Grear Designers was hired to develop an interior donor recognition system for the new building. The main donor wall includes the names of all the donors silk-screened on a large central glass wall. The wall becomes frosted when viewed from the front and appears clear when viewed at an angle. The recognition system features several levels of signs for galleries, theater, café, etc.
The center's website has the most current opening date and ticket information.

Brown University recently broke ground for their new Creative Arts Center to be named the Perry and Marty Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, a $40-million arts center designed by New York architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The three story building will feature six different floor levels, split at half-story intervals, that will allow students to be able to easily view the adjacent spaces, up and below. The 35,000 square foot building will include an art gallery, a film-screening room, a recording studio, a multimedia lab, three production studios, and outside will be an amphitheater.
