Overview: Situated in Tacoma’s historic Union Depot—Warehouse neighborhood, the design takes its inspiration from the neighborhood’s elemental brick structures, its industrial and transportation history, as well as from the art collection itself. A major intersection—light rail, car traffic, and a pedestrian mall—the site is even the precise terminus of what was once the Northern Pacific Railway, the line that Lincoln put into place to populate the West. Subtle railroad associations come via its resemblance to boxcars, and the local Western tradition via its resemblance to barn slat ventilation and fencing.
