Market to MOHAI
Project Lead: Ian Campbell
Stretching from Pike Place Market to the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) in South Lake Union, Market to MOHAI is an urban pedestrian trail connecting Seattle’s Waterfront, Belltown, Denny Triangle, and South Lake Union neighborhoods. A busy highway that once cut between the city’s waterfront and Lake Union now directs traffic underground, and this newly blazed trail shows that you can stroll between the two bodies of water in less than a half-hour.
Market to MOHAI encourages Seattleites to slow down, look around and enjoy a stroll through their city. To mark the way we developed a visual brand, then designed interpretive panels for light posts which provide intriguing nuggets about the surrounding neighborhood. Quotes underfoot reflect on life in the city, and on the pleasures of walking. (Our personal favorite, from Oscar Wilde: “I enjoy long walks, especially when they are taken by people that annoy me.”)
