The Mashantucket Peqout Muesum and the Research Center in Connecticut, USA.
The Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center was built on the
Mashantucket Pequot Reservation in Connecticut. It is the world’s largest
and most comprehensive Native American museum and research center.
The facility was designed to interact with its surrounding environment and
maintain the ecological integrity of the area by embracing the tree line and
topography. Due to the large size of the facility ca. 28.600 m2, the Tribe
wanted a seamless transition between the museum roof and the adjacent
marshland, a 500 acre (200 ha) wetland of significant historical and cultural
importance to the Mashantucket Pequot community. The green roof is approximately
ca. 7.000 m2 and covers all of the permanent museum exhibit
