Jim Olson: Home Base

Location Seattle, Washington
Exhibit Designer Alan Maskin

Home Base presents an intimate portrait of architect Jim Olson and his architectural legacy, from his first project in 1959 to his ongoing work for clients across the globe. At the age of eighteen, Olson began work on a bunkhouse for his family in Longbranch, Washington. Since then, he has continued to expand the small structure into both a private retreat and a touch point for his work worldwide.

Home Base documents the design and redesign of this project over 56 years through a never-before-seen collection of photos, architectural models, sketches and selected ephemera: the subsequent evolution of his coinciding—and still thriving—architectural career. The exhibit focuses on Jim at four junctures in his career—at age 18, 41, 61, and 74.
