Lucas Museum of Narrative Art
Los Angeles, California
ENGEO is the geotechnical and environmental engineer of record for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art that will house the private art and memorabilia collections of famed filmmaker, George Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson. The Museum will be constructed on two state-owned parking lots on Vermont Avenue south of Exposition Boulevard. Construction of the Museum is expected to take approximately three years, beginning in January 2018 and finishing in 2021. The Museum of Narrative Art will be a five-story, 115-foot-tall building. Nearly one-third of the proposed building’s 290,000 sf will be dedicated to gallery space, with other program elements including a movie theater, a lecture hall, a library, a restaurant and several digital classrooms. A publicly accessible green roof terrace will cap the building, while a 2,425-space parking complex will be located underneath. The new museum and surrounding 11-acre public space is set to revitalize Los Angeles’ Exposition Park.
