Lower Rainier Vista & Pedestrian Land Bridge

Project Title: Lower Rainier Vista & Pedestrian Land Bridge
Landscape Architect: Gustafson Guthrie Nichol
Category: Category I - General Design over $500,000 Construction Budget
Location: Seattle, WA
Description: The University of Washington Lower Rainier Vista Project extends and completes the Olmsted Brothers' historic vision for a monumental campus axis within the intersection of many transportation modes. The design references collegiate-gothic forms and uses fine-tuned grading of the Vista to frame views, integrate modern infrastructure, and provide new ADA connections. A new land bridge facilitates multimodal integration of pedestrians, cyclists, buses, and automobiles between the new light rail station at Husky Stadium, Montlake Triangle, and the campus heart.
