Tour of the new Burke Museum w/ YAF

Join AIA Seattle Young Architect Forum on a tour of the new Burke Museum!

The New Burke will break down traditional museum barriers, integrating exhibit spaces with research labs and visible collections storage and inviting visitors to be part of a working museum. The design for the New Burke combines dramatic views of objects with Northwest features like sustainable wood siding, a native plant garden, and a shed-style roof inspired by traditional Coast Salish dwellings.
