University of Alaska Museum of the North
The new University of Alaska Museum of the North doubled the size of the original building from 40,000 to 78,000 sq ft.
Architect Joan Soranno and the GDM/HGA architectural team designed the building to convey a sense of Alaska, with innovative lines and spaces evoking images of alpine ridges, glaciers, breakup on the Yukon River and the aurora. As visitors arrive in Fairbanks by air, rail and road, they will see this striking addition to the Fairbanks skyline, certain to become one of Alaska's major cultural landmarks. >>>
