PIONEER PARK PAVILION
This facility serves as the southern book end to Puyallup’s outdoor living room, Pioneer Park. The urban design approach was to open the building’s transparent north façade to the park and the sheltered transparent south façade to the adjacent street to allow vendors’ vehicles the ability to occasionally back up, over reinforced grass pavers, to this façade. The eastern brick mass of the restaurant addresses Puyallup’s historic commercial street and the west curving brick façade honors the brick massing of the new public library to the west. The building’s north façade is also organized to serve as a backdrop and stage set for each summer’s concert in the park series.
