SEATTLE ART MUSEUM OLYMPIC SCULPTURE PARK

Technology Focuses: CONCRETE
Designer: WEISS/MANFREDI
The project for the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle is located on an industrial site at the water’s edge. The design of the complex creates a continuous constructed landscape for art, a Z-shaped green platform which descends 40 feet from the city to the water. This zigzag structure capitalizes on views of the skyline and Elliot Bay and rises over the existing infrastructure to reconnect the urban core to the revitalized waterfront. The pedestrian route links three new archetypal landscapes of the northwest: a dense temperate evergreen forest, a deciduous forest and a shoreline garden. An exhibition pavilion under the pedestrian strip provides space for art, performance and educational programming.
