The Dali Museum @ St Petersburg

 

With its bare concrete and spiralling DNA-inspired stairwell, the newly designed Dali Museum in Florida is looking a lot more science than surreal.

Designed by HOK and Beck Group, The Dali Museum in St Petersburg “combines elements of the classical and the fantastical”, said the museum director in an Arch Daily report.

The centerpiece of the design, that winding genome stairwell—or ‘Enigma’, as it’s apparently called—references the Spanish surrealist’s own fascination with mathematics.
