Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI)

Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI)

Tampa

Built in 1978 by H. Dean Rowe, FAIA, Dwight E. Holmes, FAIA, John Tennison, AIA, Keith Bailey, AIA, Michael Shirely, AIA - Second Phase Antoine Predock of Robbins, Bell & Kuehlem Architects.

The original museum was in and of itself an ‘exhibit’ with exposed plumbing and duct work so guests could see how the building worked. It earned an Owens-Corning National Energy Conservation honor award in 1978. According to Predock, "It's a building that has as its purpose science, the answering of questions, the exploring of the mysterious. That's what science and this museum is all about. That's what the building had to be."
