Wright Exhibition Space

Location Seattle, Washington
Design Principal Jim Olson

A warehouse in an industrial neighborhood was transformed into a SoHo-like home to display a collection of modern art. The existing one-story, concrete-block building was gutted to make way for an equally simple gallery. Inside, the larger of two offices is a re-assembly of an office previously designed for another building. The three galleries are top-lit by concealed skylights that appear as glowing planes of light. The abstract qualities of the galleries create a world where only the art exists. Richard Gluckman was an advisor to this project.
