The Seattle ARCH Proposal

Seattle A.R.C.H. is a proposed ruin from the never-used R.H. Thomson Expressway symbolizing the importance of grass roots activism. It stands to remember, celebrate and honor the citizen activists that worked together to stop another freeway from tearing up Seattle neighborhoods in the 1960s, and it serves to show future activists that civic engagement can produce big results.
