Lucas Chooses High Design by Picking Architects Gang, Yansong for Star Wars Museum

George Lucas named the architects for his Museum of Narrative Art, better known as the Star Wars Museum, in Chicago yesterday. Lucas chose Ma Yansong, founder of the Beijing firm MAD Architects to design the building set for Chicago’s lake front and Chicago’s own Jeanne Gang, who heads Studio Gang Architects, to design the landscape around it and a pedestrian bridge that will link the museum campus to Northerly Island, a nearby concert venue on a peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan.
