Chicago • Architects from Beijing and Chicago will design George Lucas' new museum to be built along Chicago's lakefront.

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art announced Monday that Beijing-based MAD Architects would be the principal designer for the site, while Chicago's Studio Gang would design the landscape and a bridge to the city's Northerly Island nature area.

The "Star Wars" creator last month picked Chicago to host his museum of art and movie memorabilia. Chicago offered a site along Lake Michigan near other attractions such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum.



Lucas says the architects were chosen after a world-wide search. Chicago-based VOA Associates will be executive architects and lead implementation of MAD's design.

The museum's design is to be introduced in late 2014.
