Occidental Square Pavilion

A central performance pavilion, covered gathering area, and visitor kiosk to serve users of Occidental Park in the heart of Pioneer Square

Project Description

Architects at Olson Kundig have designed a graceful steel, timber, and glass pavilion to accommodate new programming and increased use of the revitalized Occidental Park. The activation of the park resulted from three years of investment in staffing, programming, maintenance, and security. What was once a barely visited public space that felt unwelcoming and even unsafe to many is now a thriving gathering place for all. The many performances and exhibitions that are now spread out in temporary tents in the park will be accommodated in a beautifully designed pavilion paid for entirely by private-sector contributions.
