After lunch on Monday, I walked over to the National Building Museum to explore the museum’s new installation, “The BIG Maze”. The maze, which at its highest reaches 18 feet, was constructed by the Danish architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group, informally known as “BIG”, and will only be around until Labor Day.
When I was v young, and under the influence of British mystery writers and film makers, I though that someday I’d have a topiary maze. I also planned to have a secret passage that led from one room to another. It’s rather hard to pull this off in a city condo.
Solving the Maze was a lot of fun. When you’re inside it, you find yourself speeding up as you search for the center.
Here’s a video of the construction.
