The Perot Museum originally applied for the mark described as “a three-dimensional configuration of a building” in connection with “[e]ducational services, namely, conducting programs in the fields of nature and science; Museum services; Party and wedding reception planning and coordination services; Special event planning, coordination and consultation services for social entertainment purposes.”

And a more detailed description:
The mark consists of a three-dimensional configuration of a building. The top portion of the building features a cube-like design with a partial triangle cut out of one corner. In front of the triangle is a rectangular bar design featuring squares and rectangles. Below the cube design features an abstract shape. The right side is rectangular, with one corner of the rectangle extending out onto a pointed tip. The left side is triangular, with the bottom section featuring a zig-zag-like design. The outer portion of the building is covered with quadrilaterals, squares, rectangles and triangles. The areas depicted in dotted lines are not a feature of the mark and are intended to show the placement of the mark.
Both updates were accepted and a registration (U.S. Reg. No. 5426520) issued on March 20, 2018 for the 3D Building Configuration.
