Tashjian Bee and Pollinator Discovery Center featured in Architect Magazine

Author: John Blair

Architect Magazine features an article on the unique truss design of the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Tashjian Bee and Pollinator Discovery Center. You can also view a short video on the project.

The article features a quote from MSR Principal Tom Meyer: “[I]t is a kind of bellwether project for the future of sustainability,” Meyer says. “A lot of buildings in the last generation are unnecessarily complex,” but the near-net-zero-energy bee center “has a kind of modesty. It’s not cheap, but the money that’s spent on it is [spent] toward performance.”
