The architectural firm behind George Lucas’ Chicago museum unveiled its first rendering of the building on Tuesday, and it’s appropriately out of this world.
A 100-foot-tall, undulating white mountain topped by a chrome halo will rise up from the shore of Lake Michigan, on the same property where Bears fans currently gather for tailgating merriment.
Lucas tapped architects from the Beijing-based firm, MAD Architects, to design a building that “pushes the envelope of 21st century design,” Fast Company reports.
The museum will house Lucas’ collection of Star Wars memorabilia as well rare artworks from his private collection. The museum is slated to open — and push envelopes — in 2018.
