PARK | Urban Interventions

A proposal for an AIA Ideas Competition, PARK addresses issues relevant to Seattle's Exposition Park, where varying cultural institutions and sports venues share a similarly patchwork setting. This proposed masterplan imagines the potential of institutional collaboration and the power of open space to strengthen visitor experience for all. 

Landscape unifies the patchwork of cultural institutions and sports venues at the site, and anticipates use by residents and tourists alike. This reinvented natural world celebrates nature by creating an experience with roots in the past and a vision of an ecologically resilient city.  Bike and walking trails weave along swales that pick up water run-off. To the east, the Ridge - part stadium, part landscape, part building - houses indoor, neighborhood-serving recreational uses and shelters a multimodal mobility hub devised to strengthen city connections.
