Lightcatcher Museum, Bellingham, WA
Children’s Museum: THE LIGHTCATCHER is designed by Olson Kundig Architects. The building is named for its focal point and most innovative feature — a spectacular, translucent wall 37 feet high and 180 feet long, that captures the sunlight. Summit Construction was the general contractor on the project, which was managed by the city’s Department of Public Works.
The 42,000-square-foot-building integrates natural materials native to the region and is the first museum in Washington designed and registered to LEED Silver-Level specifications.
