Chihuly Garden and Glass

After being invited by the Wright family to exhibit at Seattle Center, Chihuly started working with Center Art on a plan for the 1.5-acre plot. In consideration of best practices for the environment, the group decided to repurpose the existing building for the Exhibition Hall, add garden space and design a glass house as the centerpiece of the project. Chihuly chose specific artworks from his career and started to envision new sculptures for the site.

Intended to function as a community gathering place, Chihuly Garden and Glass broke ground in August 2011. The installation of artworks in the Gardens started March 2012, and then moved into the Glasshouse and Exhibition Hall. The project received LEED Silver certification in late 2012.
