3.4-hectare (8.5-acre) outdoor park for the Seattle Art Museum, designed as a continuous plane to highlight art, landscape, and architecture as it connects the city’s urban core to a revitalized waterfront. The park’s 670-m (2,200-ft) Z-shaped pedestrian walkway seamlessly crosses a busy city street and active rail line to end at a restored shoreline, with new seawall, pocket beach, and salmon habitat. A one-story, 650-m² (7,000-ft²) transparent pavilion building sits at the site’s high point with 2,322-m² (25,000-ft²) of below-grade parking.
