BIG Designs a Summer Maze for National Building Museum

02 April, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) will create a large-scale maze at the National Building Museum this summer. Made of Baltic birch plywood, the 3,721-square-foot cube-like structure takes its cues from ancient labyrinths, European garden and hedge mazes from the 17th and 18th centuries, and modern American corn mazes.

Ingels’ design inverts the traditional convoluted path of a maze, culminating in a 360-degree reveal of the labyrinth upon reaching its center. The maze, surrounded by 18-foot-tall walls, will be located in the West Court of the museum’s Great Hall and afford aerial views from second-and third-floor balconies.

The maze will be open July 4-September 1.
