Senan Choe Winter 2020

Course Description

The project is a new public arts and exhibition center that provides educational, production and display venues for local youth artists at the site and along the new pier. The new public arts and exhibition center is home to a local non-profit organization, such as Urban Artworks, The Creative Advantage, and Sawhorse Revolution, that provides opportunities for Seattle youth to work with their hands in learning new skills and finding outlet for their creative spirits. Educational and production facilities are integrated with rotating exhibition spaces on site, with the option to extend to the new waterfront pier component of the Seattle Waterfront Project, and beyond. The project site anchors the southern end of the new waterfront development and is at the intersection of Pioneer Square, SODO, and the International District. The location sets the stage for a public celebration of the power of making, and of the creative collaboration possible between the community and the city youth.
