Suquamish Museum

Suquamish, WA

The Suquamish Museum is a new 9,000 square foot tribal museum located on the Suquamish reservation.  In addition to exhibit space, this facility includes an intimate auditorium, an archive and research room, gift shop, public meeting room and ADA-compliant public restrooms.  Archive and research rooms provide increased access to documents and artifacts for tribal and community members and visiting scholars.  The structural framing consists of wood trusses spanning over the large open exhibition space. The expansive lobby is framed with peeled log beams spanning the space bearing on peeled log columns. This project received a 2013 American Institute of Architects Civic Design Award Citation.
