First Look: BIG’s BIG Maze at the National Building Museum
Architectural Record, July 7, 2014
The vast Great Hall of the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is as tricky to program as it is impressive to behold. More than 300 feet long and several stories high, the Renaissance Revival hall is often rented out for private events, and its columns and arcades provide a suitably grand backdrop during gala dinners. But the space tends to swallow up lectures and other small-scale public programs. To make better use of it, the museum installed a giant maze as the centerpiece of its summer programming.
