PROJECT SUMMARY

In-Closure

Public park and interactive wall for urban revival

The master plan reintroduces a forest in the heart of Seattle, USA, giving homage to the past while reminding present-day and future residents of the city’s natural habitat.

Planned for implementation over decades to come, the project aims to be adaptable to future changes, an objective that is straightforwardly supported by minimal interventions and restraint of formal means.
