A massive 11-acre green roof to be brought to L.A. by the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art
The George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is set to be built in L.A.’s Exposition Park. The MAD Architects team, led by Ma Yansong, has unveiled updated plans for the futuristic building, and they include a massive 11-acre green roof.
The design for the $1 billion project will be presented to the Los Angeles City Planning Commission for approval soon, according to Urbanize LA. The latest updates made by the architecture firm include a massive green roof and the elongated sinewy shape of the 300,000 square feet complex.
The museum is set to have two theatres, archives, offices, classrooms and a library spread over two wings. The bulk of the exhibition space will be housed on the fourth floor, where the two wings connect, according to Inhabitat. A restaurant, along with additional exhibition space, will be located on the top floor. An underground parking garage with capacity for 2,400 cars adjacent to the museum will be concealed under 11 acres of expansive green space.
The museum will be home to one-of-a kind collections divided into three categories: narrative art, the art of cinema and digital art.
