Building Notes

This urban park has been renovated several times, the last by architect Ricardo Legoretta (1931-2011) and the University of Washington graduate, landscape architect Laurie Olin (b. 1938). Legorretta and Olin included a 10-story bell tower (painted purple) within the secluded urban park.
