Lucas Museum Architect Talks About His Design; Others Fight to Stop Museum

Earlier this month, the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art revealed the conceptual designs for the facility, and the reaction around Chicago has been… spirited.  Some love it, others not so much.  One thing is for sure, there is nothing like it anywhere else!  That is due in large part to the creativity of Ma Yansong, the architect chosen by George Lucas to bring his dream project to life.  In the video below, you can hear him discuss the inspiration and vision behind the design.

 

However, there are those who are fighting the proposed museum, no matter what form it takes.  Friends of the Parks, a non-profit group dedicated to maintaining the open space on the Chicago lakefront, is in the process of filing a lawsuit in federal court designed to bring the plans for the museum to a halt. Both sides will be able to voice their concerns, and offer clarity where questions still exist, when they appear before the court.

    While I can appreciate the argument of those who want to preserve the natural beauty of the lakefront, this is not going to be a huge box that is nothing more than an eyesore. Beautiful buildings — like the one proposed by the architectural team — can blend into the landscape — and even enhance it. Ma Yansong appears to be dedicated to doing just that!

    If anyone wants an example of beautiful museum architecture that sits on our Great Lake, they should come up to Milwaukee to see the gorgeous art museum designed by Spanish Architect Santiago Calatrava that sits on the lakefront here in Cream City. 😀

    I hope this museum goes through. It will be a great addition to a great city! 🙂
