The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art (LMNA), established by renowned filmmaker George Lucas and businesswoman Mellody Hobson, is currently in the process of construction at Los Angeles’s Exposition Park, with plans for its grand opening in 2025. This remarkable institution will be a celebration of the art of storytelling, embracing an array of creative mediums, including painting, photography, sculpture, illustration, comic art, performance, and video.

As the world’s first major museum dedicated entirely to the art of storytelling, LMNA’s emergence is a momentous and timely development. Storytelling, a cornerstone of human expression spanning centuries, serves as a conduit for conveying ideas, values, and experiences. Furthermore, LMNA’s commitment to representing diverse storytelling traditions from various cultures and backgrounds is poised to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of this universal human practice.

The visionary architect behind LMNA is Ma Yansong, the esteemed founder and principal architect of MAD Architects, celebrated for his pioneering and sustainable designs. True to his innovative reputation, the museum’s structure is a testament to contemporary architectural brilliance. Comprising glass, concrete, and steel, the building takes on a striking form of interlocking spirals, creating a dynamic and inviting space. Its eco-conscious design incorporates features such as a solar roof and rainwater harvesting system, promoting sustainability.

However, a prominent challenge emerges from the design and arrangement of galleries on the upper floors, primarily centered around ensuring seamless vertical transportation for visitors. The LMNA leadership team is resolutely committed to tackling this issue, with the unwavering goal of ensuring an exceptional and uncompromised visitor experience. Kiran Consulting Group takes immense pride in supporting this dedicated team, playing a vital role in bringing to life one of the world’s most distinguished museums.
