The exterior will be metallic. After the wood paneling they'll slap on a layer of Tyvek and then you'll start to see the copper "plank" skin.

A copper coating is definitely a bad idea, it requires a lot of time to be kept in semi decent shape... Isn't the director a shareholder of a house cleaning company? Because it may look "cool" but is a waste of public money.

Hard to see in the picture, but black bricks are going up around the base of the building

I think I saw the parking garage across the street under construction when driving by a few weeks ago (far left in photo). I didn't realize that they were building one for the museum.

Yes, the posted rendering is the only rendering that i know of, but i do volunteer at the Dallas Holocaust Museum and we were told that this parking lot was going to become a parking garage for the museum. i am very happy to hear we will be getting the garage!

They submitted renderings of the garage to the landmark commission a long time ago. If I could remember which meeting agenda it was I would go find it. There are multiple renderings of the parking garage for the museum out there somewhere.
