dc.description.abstract This thesis project is an adaptation of a site on one of Seattle's former working waterfronts, Lake Union. Located on the lake's eastern shore, the site was recently vacated, providing an opportunity to create a path and destination that enhances the connection of the site to the water and its surrounding neighborhoods. This is achieved through a recreation facility that reclaims utilitarian structures for recreational use. Lost Lake Park provides a framework for a programmatic connection between the activities that occur on land and and those that occur on water. On land, it creates a node of activity in a current dead zone in the transit corridor between the University of Washington and downtown. On water, the site connects to a greater context of parks that exist on Lake Union, unifying the neighborhoods beyond that are presently separated by the lake. Through strategies of layering over and cutting through the existing site, buildings, and piers, the site design recalls its history while providing a use needed by today's city. en_US
