This holiday season, we’re thankful for the recognition that we’ve received from this year’s Architecture MasterPrize and Seattle AIA.
The Seattle Asian Art Museum was selected for a Seattle AIA Honorable Mention. The Seattle Asian Art Museum is the most prominent cultural destination in Volunteer Park. Designed by the Olmsted Brothers in 1903, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is one of the most loved and intensively used parks in Seattle. Walker Macy collaborated closely with the architectural design team and arborist, the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and numerous advisory groups to repair damage incurred by previous building projects, creates a gracious accessible entry, restores historic park paths, and provides a stunning indoor-outdoor experience at the backside of the museum. The result is a museum that sits gracefully in its natural setting, surrounded by large trees – and a park experience that is both sublime and familiar. Thank you to our team @lmnarchitects @treesolutions @seattleasianartmuseum
