Design Challenge: 

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in collaboration with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) seeks an artist or artist team to create a major integrated artwork on the public piers of the Seattle Central Waterfront. These piers will be rebuilt as part of Waterfront Seattle, a large-scale project to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct with the potential of 26 acres of new public space, streets, parks, and buildings. The selected artist or artist team will collaborate with the project design team to create an original artwork or series of artworks on Union Street Pier or Pier 62/63. The call is one of a series of calls for permanent and temporary artworks along the redeveloped Seattle waterfront.

The artist will join the Waterfront Seattle design team in February 2014 and will develop a conceptual direction for the artwork over the first half of 2014. Upon acceptance of the concept design, the artist will be contracted for design development, engineering, fabrication and installation of the artwork.
