The museum is housed in an arresting new structure, a heroic revamp of some century-old grain silos that have long dominated the mix of ship-works and tourist-oriented development around it. Probably the most impressive aspect of the architecture is the interior where British-architect Thomas Heatherwick has cut into the honeycomb like matrix of the silos to create a grand atrium that blends the biomorphic with the brutal—like entering the petrified intestines of an ancient sea creature.
