This week, Chicago City Council approved the design of the George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art set to be built on Lake Michigan. The undulating structure created by MAD Architects has been controversial since it was revealed in November 2014.

Inside, the building will include galleries to hold the director's private collection of art and memorabilia, as well as screening rooms, and a restaurant with 360-degree views at the top. The halo-like structure at the top of the taller peak will hold a viewing platform.

It's expected to begin construction next year, with a completion date of 2019.
