Designed by architecture studio Burkettdesign, The Science Pyramid was built as an addition to the Denver Botanic Gardens and features a unique and sustainable design.

The structure was inspired by the strength and "geometric efficiency" of honeycombs and so its roof is in the same hexagonal shapes as honeycombs are. The pyramid-shaped building also features glass that automatically increases or decreases its opaqueness based on the solar energy coming from the sun outside. The building is also energy efficient as it utilizes solar energy via solar panels.

The Science Pyramid is the perfect addition to the Denver Botanic Gardens since it is not only inspired by nature in its design, it also makes sure to protect nature through its educational displays and sustainable components.
