MAD Architects has revealed new renderings of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art that’s just broke ground in Los Angeles’ Exposition Park this week. Founded by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas , the museum will take on a fittingly futuristic spaceship-like appearance crafted in MAD Architects’ iconic curvaceous style. The $1.5 billion museum is expected to be complete and open to the public by the second half of 2021. Since winning the International Competition of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in 2014, MAD Architects has developed three unique designs for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, each of which respond to the three proposed project locations in Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The non-profit museum’s confirmed home in Los Angeles sits on approximately 11 acres of land in Exposition Park and will feature at least $400 million worth of art spanning Narrative Art, the Art of Cinema, and Digital Art. Related: The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will bring a massive 11-acre green roof to Los Angeles “It appears as if a futuristic spaceship, with a mysterious and surrealistic attitude, has “landed” on the site’s natural environment,” wrote MAD Architects. “People from all walks of life are welcome to feel and appreciate this cultural paradise. The interior of the building has been designed as a huge bright and open cave. Skylights allow sunlight to flood the interior space, and guide visitors through the museum’s various programs. The first floor and roof of the building are expansive public areas that can be enjoyed by everyone. People can exercise here, relax, talk to the surrounding natural environment, and directly experience nature in the urban environment.” + MAD Architects Via ArchDaily Images via MAD Architects

Designed by MDC Interiors , this uber-cool Glow Table is a coffee table made from recycled pallet wood, concrete, glass, pine, and steel. The concrete combined with a narrow pallet strip provides an industrial feel along with a warm and earthy presence, and the natural opening in the pallet wood creates a perfect to hold your favorite drink. Also great for creating some ambience at night, the accent lights under the glass illuminate the beverages atop. A dimmer switch is attached to change the light setting. + MDC Interiors The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?
