Located adjacent to SR 520 north of the Overlake Village Park-and-Ride on 152nd Avenue Northeast, this street-level station serves the Overlake area of Redmond, home to about 46,000 jobs and growing residential neighborhoods.
Travel time: Overlake Village to Pioneer Square - 30 minutes
ARTIST: Yuki Nakamura (Tacoma, WA/London, UK)
DESCRIPTION: Nakamura will scatter a collection of colorful, organically-shaped concrete sculptures throughout the plaza in front of the Overlake Village Station. Nakamura thinks of these objects as interactive and hopes that people will lounge on them as they wait for the train or their rides home. These polished, highly-refined objects will be at their most visually appealing during the wettest months of the year, when the rain will make their colors extra vibrant and animate the station area during the darkest months of the year.
PROJECT: Pedestrian Bridge
ARTIST: Leo Berk (Seattle, WA)
DESCRIPTION: Berk's artwork will be an environment of pixelated images of natural places from around the region, rendered in shades of rich greens and colors drawn from early computer monitors. Constructed from regularly-spaced, aluminum louvers, the artwork will fully enclose both sides of the 500-foot long bridge. Looking straight down the length of the bridge from either end, the walls will appear solid; as one passes over the bridge, the images will seem to break apart as pedestrians or cyclists pass the gaps between the louvers.
