Staying in Place: Mt Baker Hub Studio

Public Balcony

B.A. Architecture

This project uses the existing asset of the pedestrian bridge to engage Franklin High School students in cultivating companion vegetables in modular planters. The bridge can become a public balcony garden for the Mt. Baker Hub area, stewarded by community members. Due to the site’s visibility to both pedestrian and motorized traffic, this repeatable intervention can act as a symbol for the neighborhood, becoming a point of interest.
