The ArtScience Museum with its unique design is reminiscent of the lotus flower. It was designed by the architect Moshe Safdie. The roof is shaped like a bowl with what appears to be a hole in the middle. Rain water is collected and channeled through the center core of the building like a waterfall. The museum features over 4,600m2 of gallery space.
