Seattle's "freeway with a lid on it" created a Convention Center and an urban park able to span the I-5 cut between First Hill / downtown and Capitol Hill to the east. Freeway Park and the Washington State Trade and Convention Center (green windowed buildings to left) sit over the freeway and display brutalist architecture's ability to merge with natural forms like the hanging garden greenery that descends to the freeway below. In view to the left in the park is the George Washington profile sculpture on posts that also seem to serve as an arbor for climbing greenery.
