First Hill Gallery Exhibit

Location Seattle, Washington
Design Principal Alan Maskin
Principal Jim Olson
Principal Tom Kundig

This exhibit is dedicated to the boom years (1885 to 1910) of Seattle’s first residential neighborhood, and told through the eyes of Guendolyn Carkeek Plestcheeff, a woman whose memories of turn-of-the-century Seattle inspired the exhibit. Plestcheeff’s life is woven through all of the displays (a combination of artifacts, murals, life-size photo cutouts and memory books), creating a tapestry-like narrative in three dimensions. An overhead frieze parallels First Hill history with significant world events to provide a larger context.
