Alaskan Way Viaduct
This 2019 photo series combines 75 one-point perspective images into a seamless elevation of Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct. Originally constructed in the 1950’s, the Viaduct became the “form-work” of Seattle’s waterfront for nearly 70 years. As the Viaduct is demolished piece by piece, Seattle’s true waterfront elevation is being revealed. This study is part eulogy, part historical document, and part record of the contrast between temporary, urban form-work and the shaped city behind.
