NEXUS

SEATTLE, WA | URBAN INTERVENTION COMPETITION

FLU(x) Architecture + Design 2012 | Jorge Bazan, Vanessa Lira, Chris Shern, and Kevin Young (YAR+D)

Nexus is a proposal for the new Seattle Center. It is inspired by the location’s history first, as a sacred clearing for the gathering of Native Americans; second, as a place where in 1962 the future of communication was imagined at the World’s Fair; and third, as a place of encounter at the heart of a city renowned for its progressive ideals. We envision a new interface through which people experience the city of Seattle and its connection to the world. We see the park as a portal for seeing out and for looking in, recognizing the notion that in the 21st century, public space in a city contains a small bit of the public space of every other.
