Winner of the Cade Museum Architecture Contest Presents Building DesignOctober 5th, 2012 by gainesvillechamber
GWWO, the winner of the Cade Museum’s architecture contest, has unveiled the design for the highly-anticipated Cade Museum of Creativity & Invention building that is scheduled to open Phase One in 2015. The museum will be built in Depot Park along South Main Street and will cost $9 million to build. The museum will be educational and interactive with plenty of hands-on exhibits to inspire entrepreneurship and young scientists. Some of the museum’s special features will include a neuroscience room to learn about creativity in the brain, classrooms, and an invention lab.
Alan Reed, Design Principal for GWWO, said that nature, brain cells and the universe inspired him for the look of the museum. The concept of everything being interconnected in life will be displayed in the main hall in the center of the building where “everything grows out of.” GWWO is a national architecture firm that has also been responsible for the design of other well-respected museums including the museum at Mount Vernon and the Port Canaveral Welcome Center.
A sneak peek of Phase 2 will include an additional 24,000 square foot building that can have wedge-shaped structures added to the building or additional stories.
