From the Architects:

Rather than trying to add new buildings to existing structures, we propose to add a man-made landscape of stones to the existing buildings in the Botanical Garden. The new Natural History Museum's architecture will not compete with the existing built heritage. We propose a Natural History Museum as a man-made mineral landscape that naturally adapts ti the historic buildings and their stone pavings and the organic forms of the Botanical.
