Riverfront Spokane is a place of community that brings natural beauty to the
city's residents.

surrounded by grass and plants,
just like it was always intended
to be. Walker says, " The renovated pavilion welcomes nature in
instead of hiding from it. I don't
know anyone who doesn't like it. "

The Comeback Kid
" Everyone loves a comeback, "
Walker says. " And the pavilion
came back in a big way, especially
thanks to its light display. "
Because the pavilion's original
white cover was never meant to withstand the wear and tear of Mother
Nature and time, officials removed it
not long after the expo. The design
team was tasked with coming up
with a comparable replacement.
What was their solution? Install light
blades. " The pavilion's cable net structure and silhouette [are] the same as
when [they were] built for the fair. But
suddenly, here the pavilion is, in the
21st century, and it's covered in these
gorgeous lights that are bright, yet subtle, something to marvel at without
feeling overwhelmed, " Walker says.
Michaelsen says that part of the
idea for light blades came from the
community's input.
" Many in the community seemed
enamored with the idea of covering the pavilion as it had been for
Expo '74, " Michaelsen says. " But
as we worked with the community, we realized it was not a cover
they wanted; they wanted to see the
great shape of the structure. What
emerged was the idea of letting the
cable cone be translucent in the day,
but become solid at night. "
The city's P&R team couldn't be
happier with the results. " The design-build team understood the [parks
department's] desire for a covered
space, " says Ellison. " Their idea to

cover the pavilion in a dynamic light
display with added shade sails that
preserved the view of the sky certainly
exceeded our wildest imaginations. "

A Progressive Method
Innovative ideas and technology
were not the only elements of the
project the city applauded. The project's delivery method played a big
role in the success of the project as
well. " The parks department considered several delivery methods for this
project, " Ellison says. " We ultimately chose progressive design-build because of the advantages of real-time
estimating, immediate feedback
from our contractor regarding design
concepts and schedule constraints.
Ultimately, our ever-evolving program would have been nearly impossible with a traditional design-bidbuild delivery method. "
" This method's flexibility allowed
for dramatic changes to the project, "
Mead says. " It gave the project lots
of opportunity to excel, and each
team involved was able to successfully collaborate and fulfill the owner's
ever-expanding, imaginative vision. "

A Portal to the Past
For many, the pavilion was a celebration of Mother Nature and all she has
to offer, as well as a symbol of hope for
a better, cleaner world. Now, it sym-

bolizes the city itself and Spokane's
unwavering determination to bring its
natural beauty back to its people.
In 1974, a fairgoer could visit the
pavilion to learn that the world was
in danger. Today, it's a place where
a park-goer can be immersed in the
nature that environmentalists so
earnestly want to protect.
It's also a place of community. " A
guiding principle of our design was
that the experience within had to exceed the experience from afar, " Michaelsen says. " With every step closer
to the pavilion, we wanted you to see
something awesome, something that
would excite you and draw you in.
In its reimagined state, the pavilion is
better than ever from afar, especially
at night, but more importantly, it's an
exceptional experience from within as
well. And while most city icons require
admission, the pavilion is a completely free public place. It's a community
treasure, not a tourist novelty. "
So far, the pavilion has hosted concerts, spin classes, a Native American
ceremony, ghost stories, the mayor's
gala and weekend light shows. The
openness of the pavilion, its accessibility and the misty falls it neighbors
make it an even better place than the
past could have ever imagined.
