Jack Rouse Associates (JRA) has won The Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention’s exhibit design competition, competing against 26 other design firms from the United States and Canada.
Together with GWWO Architects from Baltimore, Jack Rouse Associates will build a world-class museum in downtown Gainesville named after Dr. James Robert Cade. Dr Cade was a University of Florida physician who led the team that invented Gatorade in 1965 and the museum will focus on inspiring creative thinking, future inventors, and early entrepreneurs.
JRA, named by The Wall Street Journal as “one of the world’s most prominent design firms”, has worked with and more than 50 museums, science centers, and visitor centers throughout the U.S. and worldwide, including Kennedy Space Center, The Henry Ford Museum, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the Washington Monument Interpretive Center.
The Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention is scheduled to open in October 2015 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first use of Gatorade in a football game.
