Studio Gang will design National Building Museum’s 2017 summer installation

More details on what the installation will be won’t emerge until next year

The summer is coming to an end, and that can only mean one thing: the National Building Museum’s summer installation, ICEBERGS, will come to a close.

Don’t fret, though. The National Building Museum already has plans for the next big, beautiful, and Instagrammable "Summer Block Party" installation. In 2017, the museum’s summer structure will be designed by Studio Gang, an architecture and urbanism practice based in Chicago and New York.

Founded in 1997 by architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang, Studio Gang is known for projects like the Nature Boardwalk at the Lincoln Park Zoo and the Aqua Tower in Chicago. Studio Gang was also recently selected to design the expansion of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, according to a press release.

Details of the next National Building Museum installation won’t be released until early 2017. A press release reported that the installation is expected to open to the public on July 4, 2017 and remain open until Labor Day 2017.

Previous "Summer Block Party" installations that have occurred at the National Building Museum have included a maze, mini golf, and a beach.
