Published on

This presentation was for my spatial design course. The objective was to design a space for a pavilion in an existing location in Seattle that advocated interaction, while connecting the Olympic Sculpture Park and Pike Place Market.

My team didn\'t win the design charette, but hope you enjoy our slides.
