Crosscut, an independent, non-profit electronic journal serving the Pacific-Northwest, posted this lovely article on the development of the New Burke.
The new 110,000 sq. ft. museum will blur traditional lines between labs, collections and public gallery spaces towards a destination that invites the public to share the knowledge and activities of scientists and ethnologists, and celebrates the nature and culture of the Pacific Northwest. This daring paradigm is being tested internally by the Burke’s staff through their temporary exhibit: Testing, Testing 1,2,3. Evidence Design is incorporating the knowledge and feedback gathered by this effort to further inform final design. We are incredibly appreciative of the work and dedication of our collaborators at the Burke!
