Seattle Aquarium Ocean Pavilion

“The boldest element of the plan comes at the northern end, where a series of stairs, planted roofs, and ramps ascends a 110-foot-high bluff to link the waterfront to the famed Pike Place Market. It is an acrobatic architectural journey that begins in curving stairs (top) that wrap a new pavilion (designed by LMN) for the bayside aquarium. Called the Over­look Walk, its terraces offer ever-expanding views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic mountains.”
