National Building Museum Summer Block Party—Lawn

Finalist 2020
National Building Museum Summer Block Party—Lawn

Every summer, The National Building Museum in Washington D.C. hosts an open competition to outfit the museum’s great hall with an immersive installation, which aims to create an experience encapsulating themes of summer. For the 2019 season, LAB at Rockwell Group created ‘Lawn,’ a concept celebrating the many identities of a lawn as an iconic communal space. A vast installation of a large sloping green space was built within the National Building Museum’s Great Hall, conceived to unite strangers through collective quintessential memories and rituals of summer.

The exhibition aimed to educate the public and advocate for public policy change in the US for more timber over concrete and steel construction in our urban cores.
