ARTS at King Street Station Honored with Two AIA Seattle Awards
On November 4, ARTS at King Street Station (Seattle Office of Arts & Culture) received an Honorable Mention in the AIA Seattle Honor Awards program, which honors projects designed by architects throughout the State of Washington. ARTS was also chosen as the Young Voices Selection by a panel of early-career designers.
Olson Kundig (led by principal/owner Kirsten R. Murray, FAIA) designed ARTS’ kinetic gallery walls, which enable the community and artists to reconfigure the central gallery space as needed for changing exhibitions and events. Suspended from a custom-designed elevated track inspired by the railroad tracks that serve the station below, a set of eight movable walls with integrated lighting support a wide range of displays and spatial configurations. The result is a flexible space that can easily transform to meet the evolving needs of ARTS and the community.
We are delighted to share the honor of these awards with our collaborator Schacht Aslani Architects, Architect on this project, as well as our valued partners and clients.
