This was a huge school project in collaboration with 18 students and 2 mentors. The idea was to reconnect the area between Olympic Sculpture Park and the famous Pike Market. During a two-day marathon, our team actually won first place amongst 4 teams.
To reconnet the area between Olympic Sculpture Park and the famous Pike Market, we worked hard to generate a solution for this wasted space. The problem was not only dealing with creating beautiful stuffs but taking everything into consideration so that it could solve the problem.

This project was the most exhausting project I worked on but would do it all over again. I learned a lot of design concepts and applied these concepts in real life situations. I also learned how to negotiate and align with a large number of teammates.
