The Olympic Sculpture Park, created and operated by the Seattle Art Museum, is a park, free and open to the public, in Seattle, Washington that opened in January 2007. The park consists of a 9-acre (36,000 m2) outdoor sculpture museum and beach.
As the park’s lead designer the practice collaborated with Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture, Magnusson Klemencic Associates and other consultants.
The park is situated at the northern end of the Seattle seawall and the southern end of Myrtle Edwards Park. The former industrial site was occupied by the oil and gas corporation Unocal until the 1970s and subsequently became a contaminated brownfield before the Seattle Art Museum proposed to transform the area into one of the only green spaces in Downtown Seattle.
