WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Building Museum wants visitors to get lost in a new installation in the museum’s Great Hall this summer.

On Friday, the museum is unveiling a large-scale maze with a series of twists and turns for visitors to navigate to find a big reveal at the center. The maze stands 18 feet high and measures 60 feet by 60 feet around.

The maze is designed by Danish architectural firm BIG-Bjarke Ingles Group. Unlike a traditional maze that becomes more convoluted at the center, the designers say this maze is different. As a visitor travels deeper into the maze, the path brings more clarity. On the inside, the walls slowly descend toward the center.

Organizers say this is the first large-scale building installation inside the National Building Museum since 1988.
