Roughly 320,000 objects relating to the built environment reside inside the National Building Museum. In Animals, Collected, the museum showcases the treasures that connect to the animal kingdom specifically. Architectural pieces that showcase both real and mythological animals are on display. These objects – found ornamenting municipal buildings, churches, warehouses – will have you pondering why animal objects were chosen for said locations and what they mean to the structure and inhabitants of the space.
