“Lawn,” the National Building Museum’s interactive summer exhibit, has been open since July 4. But now you can see how the 30,000-square-foot display—including a scaffolding tower that offers a unique perspective of the museum’s Great Hall—was built, thanks to a recent time-lapse video from EarthCam, which set up a camera there during construction.
The video shows visitors enjoying the grass-like expanse (made partly of sugarcane and soy), lawn furniture, and hammocks suspended from the hall’s 100-foot ceiling. Those hammocks are equipped with speakers playing summer-themed audio by celebrities and other notables.
The exhibit runs through September 2 and is the result of a collaboration between the museum, New York-based design firm Rockwell Group, and sound-design firm Yessian Music. Programing for “Lawn” includes yoga, movie nights, tours, and other activities.
