BIG MAZE AT THE NATIONAL BUILDING MUSEUM

BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group as Architects

CAN A MAZE REVEAL ITSELF? As you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a panopticon that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth? From outside, the maze’s cube-like form hides the final reveal behind its 18 foot tall walls. On the inside the walls slowly descend towards the center which concludes with a grand reveal - a 360 degree understanding from where you came and where you shall go.
