BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), the Danish architecture firm, has built a Baltic Birch plywood maze inside the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.  Here’s what the lead architect had to say:

“The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted,” said lead architect Bjarke Ingels. “What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth? From outside, the maze’s cube-like form hides the final reveal behind its 18-foot-tall walls. On the inside, the walls slowly descend towards the centre, which concludes with a grand reveal – a 360 degree understanding of your path in and how to get out.”

Check it out while it lasts.  The maze will be open until September 1st.
