Thank you to everyone that visited our parklet, added a few brush strokes and contributed to the community spirit! Together, we won the 2018 Park(ing) Day Collective Effervescence Award for producing a “magical experience… that happens when we are part of something bigger than ourselves.” It was an honor to paint beside you, hear your stories and connect here on the waterfront. Here are a few highlights from the day to “tide” you over until next year! Photos: Maren McBride, Erin Jacobs

Nordic Museum received a 2018 AIA Washington Council Civic Design Citation Award! The design jury complimented the quality of light in the museum and how it plays across the faceted planes of the central Fjord Hall, highlighting the reverence for natural light shared by the Pacific Northwest and Nordic regions.

We recently checked out the fabrication progress on precast concrete panels for the @UCIrvine Middle Earth Expansion. It was fantastic to collaborate with Coreslab on creating the folded planes and variation in this façade. Utilizing storytelling through materiality, the articulated residential towers emerge from a landform base, echoing the character and shadows of the surrounding region’s dramatically exposed and layered sandstone cliffs.
