Description
The South Lake Union Discovery Center serves as a pavilion and a neighborhood center for the new South Lake Union residential development. In addition to other sustainable features, the Discovery Center is designed to be disassembled and relocated for other uses. The building consists of four main modules which are placed on the site by cranes. Each module is framed with steel bents, and the modules are assembled together by bolted connections via the steel bents.
