MUSEUM OF GLASS BY ARTHUR ERICKSON
Amid a scruffy sprawl of warehouses and marinas, on a former brownfield site in Tacoma, Washington, sits the sparkling new Museum of Glass. Subtitled the International Center for Contemporary Art, this is the most recent hope for reviving Tacoma's lackluster downtown core.
The 75,000-square-foot (7000-square-meter), $63 million project was designed by the preeminent Canadian architect Arthur Erickson in collaboration with Nick Milkovich Architects Inc., of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Thomas Cook Reed Reinvald, of Tacoma. Published 2002.1009
