Beijing studio MAD has released renderings of the George Lucas-inspired Museum of Narrative Art to celebrate its Los Angeles construction. Its curvaceous structure is inspired by Star Wars, with circling landscapes and a giant arch for the public to wander around. The 100,000-square-foot gallery space within will display art collections and memorabilia from Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson. Other design cues include the likes of translucent elevator tubes that will transport visitors through the museum’s white ceiling in the lobby area. MAD’s design also unites education and retail spaces within the interior, which is expected to open in 2021.

Originally meant to be constructed in Chicago in 2014, the location moved to the West Coast because of its initial lakefront site and the legal issues it posed.

In related news, Lokal Hotel’s newest location is a mid-century cabin in the middle of the woods.
