2018 APWA Great Places in Washington
The expansion of Hing Hay Park, in the center of Seattle’s Chinatown-International District Neighborhood, presented an opportunity to create a transformative after-dark experience of this multi-faceted space. The gateway arch marks the new park entrance and serves as a neighborhood beacon and icon.
From meandering paths in the terraced landscape to the open plaza framed by the gateway element, the park offers many opportunities for exercise, reflection, and social gathering that are reinforced through the application of light.
