Cal Anderson Park serves an instrumental role in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, but right next to it is Nagle Place, an uninhabited street with a history of crime and violent activity. For this project, my group and I decided to activate this unused space to improve safety and make all visitors feel safe and welcome. We decided to honor the Indigenous history of the land, as well as its past ecosystem (the Duwamish River), and incorporate this in the design for the building faces and unique lighting fixtures, to transform pedestrian experience as a whole.
