National Building Museum
401 F St NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20001
This summer, the National Building Museum will present a new, interactive installation designed by Studio Gang, an architecture and urban design practice based in Chicago and New York. Titled “Hive,” it will be the latest in the Museum’s imaginative Summer Block Party series of temporary structures inside its historic Great Hall.
Soaring to the uppermost reaches of the Museum, Hive will be built entirely of more than 2,700 wound paper tubes, a construction material that is recyclable, lightweight, and renewable. The tubes vary in size from several inches to 10 feet high and will be interlocked to create three dynamic interconnected, domed chambers. Reaching 60 feet tall, the installation’s tallest dome will feature an oculus over 10 feet in diameter. The tubes feature a reflective silver exterior and vivid magenta interior, creating a spectacular visual contrast with the Museum’s historic nineteenth-century interior and colossal Corinthian columns
We willl enjoy a one hour, all-level yoga practice INSIDE the Hive in the Great Hall! Space is limited. BYO yoga mat.
