the main theme thom mayne was asked to explore with his design of the new perot museum in downtown dallas was the representation of nature and flora found in the expansive state of texas. towards that goal the museum garden, roof and balconies hold various types of plant life in modern concrete enclosures, often providing striking angles and visual combinations when viewed from the streets around it. view from broom street provides a diagonal intersection between two levels, with barely visible grass in between.
