Parks and public lands in Washington are continually in a state of distress stemming from various social, environmental, and political factors. The current system of parks, operated by multiple government agencies, does not adequately provide informational services to a growing Seattle population of residents and tourists. Through a highly accessible information and experience center in downtown Seattle, this thesis investigates the interaction between architectural and landscape scale to enhance the experience of obtaining Washington parks information.
