Set not far from Chicago's landmark skyscrapers, MAD Architects' Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, scheduled for completion in 2019, makes a statement with its organic horizontality. The museum experience begins with the surrounding park, which flows into a hardscape plaza from which the structure seems to emerge. At its top, an observation platform will offer 360-degree views of the city.
