Jason Kontos discusses "The World's Largest Dinosaurs"
Mar 24, 2011
Design is always changing. But unless we reflect on the past and integrate history into our lives, we will never grow. Now, I may refer to some people with major staying power in the design world as “dinosaurs,” but this time I am being literal when I say we need to take a look at the dinosaurs. From April 2 through January 2, 2012, a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History goes beyond traditional fossil shows, to reveal the anatomy of a group of super-sized dinosaurs. The World’s Largest Dinosaurs, curated by Mark Norell, looks in part to existing organisms to understand these extinct giants. Answering intriguing questions about how the dinosaur functioned in every day life, the centerpiece of the interactive exhibit will include a life-sized, fleshed-out model of a 60-foot-long, 11-foot-tall female known as Mamenchisaurus. This giant was known for its remarkable 30-foot-neck. So fitting in with the theme, let’s all go crane our necks to see this exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History!
