The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is being subjected to all-new designs dreamed up by MAD Architects. These new designs reveal that the building's size is to be reduced by 25 percent to 27,870 square meters. Interestingly, the building manages to retain its highly distinctive appearance and its famous circular observation deck.
Located in Chicago, the development will add 18,600 square meters of public green space alongside Lake Michigan. This space will be utilized for outdoor festivals, landscaping, native planting and a rainwater garden.
"Our goal is to celebrate and explore the crucial role narrative art has played in every culture and every period in history, as a rich source of inspiration, communication and cultural significance through our collections, exhibitions, educational offerings and film screenings," says the Lucas Museum's president Dr. Don Bacigalupi.
