This past June, it was announced that George Lucas’ Lucas Museum of Narrative Art would find a home in Chicago. The museum should further drive tourism to the city, especially considering its proposed 2018 opening will be during the release of the next slate of Star Wars films. Beyond that, it’ll serve as another museum along the Museum Campus next to the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, and Adler Planetarium, not to mention the neighboring Soldier Field.
For a city known for its skyline, the proposed concept art for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art by Beijing architecture firm MAD will add yet another interesting architectural masterpiece (or eyesore) if its designs are used. Keeping in line with the Star Wars-esque futuristic/space theme, the museum looks very similar to a space headquarters of some sort. It actually fits very well next to Soldier Field, which itself received a very unpopular redesign in 2003 that renovated the upper deck into resembling a spaceship from the street perspective.
Nevertheless, check out some of the concept art for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art below.
