Think you’re a whizz at mazes? Try this BIG maze, a 61×61 foot maze that’s going to be housed at Washington, D.C.’s National Building Museum this July. The labyrinth’s ‘Baltic birch plywood walls, which stand 18 feet high at the maze’s periphery, descend as you make your way towards the center’.

Bjarke Ingels of BIG explained the concept: ‘The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth?’
