Celebrating public parks from reclaimed land

In 1962, UW Professor of Architecture Richard Haag recast an industrial waste site at the north end of Lake Union into popular Gas Works Park. Today, an exhibit at the American Institute of Architecture created by landscape architecture design students and Associate Professor Thaisa Way explores Gas Works and 11 subsequent parks and public spaces and explains why this was such a radical move at the time.
