Seattle architecture firm Patano Studio Architecture said it received a commendation yesterday at The Architectural Review's 2017 MIPIM Future Projects Awards dinner in Cannes, France.
The firm was recognized in the Big Urban Projects category for Seattle C.A.P. The proposal would put a cap over Interstate 5 from the Lakeview overpass on the north, along the western edge of Capitol Hill toward the downtown core.
A 45-acre, 2-mile-long park would be built on the cap to reconnect the urban fabric of Seattle.
The plan also includes a 20,000-seat arena/convention space to be integrated with the Washington State Convention Center, and other structures such as housing, office space and parking.
Architectural Review is a international magazine that covers the built environment and architectural theory. Its Future Projects Awards recognize unbuilt or incomplete projects.
Previous honorees have included BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, Perkins + Will and NBBJ.
