The easily queased may want to stay away from this video of the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s new Duncan Family Wing — maybe wait until this time next year when all the giant carnivores are installed and snarling at each other and things are a little more settled down. For the rest of you, this time-lapse project shows Linbeck’s construction work since last April on the just-under 200,000-sq.-ft. dinosaur-sized expansion. Enjoy this kind of action? The museum promises the $34 million building, designed by Gensler, will include the most mounted Tyrannosaurus Rex ever assembled in one place, as well 3 more carefully animated scenes showing the ancient sea floor, where “fossils will come to life” — though likely at a less frenetic, more dinosaur-friendly pace.
