The Exploratorium is growing and expanding its mission, and it's in dire need of new facilities. Cue a new design for Piers 15/17. The project has been slowly moving forward since 2004, and this week it was reviewed by both the Waterfront Design Advisory Committee and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission's Design Review Board. Judging from these preliminary renderings by EHDD Architecture, this revamped Exploratorium could really be a fantastic addition to waterfront, so let's hope it's one step closer to becoming a reality. Assuming all goes well, construction is planned to start late this year.
