Project Details

As part of their 75th Anniversary celebrations, the Seattle Art Museum commissioned our firm to design a temporary stage in the Olympic Sculpture Park. The main event of the evening was a performance of Glenn Branca’s “Hallucination City – A Symphony for 100 Guitars.” The stage was designed so it could be built and removed within 48 hours, and was constructed from rented, off-the-shelf parts and pieces. No new resources were used in the fabrication.

Jim Friesz, an associate and senior architect in our firm, was a member of the symphony.
