musta been the 4th of july-i-i

i didn't have my pics uploaded yesterday, but i spent saturday in the park (sorry for the terrible chicago reference) with marques, justin, yachi & justin's moms. it was my first visit to the olympic sculpture park on what was a beautiful (felt like spring) day. it was great to see all of the people enjoying this new public space; little kids ran between sculptures & the old folks spent the afternoon sitting in randomly placed red chairs.

plantings are still scarce & young, but the layout of the park is well done. you can just imagine what it will all be like in a year or two. weiss/manfredi architecture/landscape/urbanism were the lead designers for the park, with magnusson klemencic associates as the lead civil & structural engineer, charles anderson landscape architecture as just that & anchor environmental for aquatic engineering.

what's my favorite? i loved wake by richard serra & stinger by tony smith (i wanted to break into bjork's 'it's oh so quiet').
