Marra Farm Bioswale, Seattle, WA

All rights reserved.

The project responded to major seasonal flooding on Director Street, as well as a need to activate a remnant corner of Marra Farms, a community garden area to the southwest.  A bioswale was designed to capture street and farm stormwater runoff, featuring water-loving plants in a high-capacity bioswale, and an access bridge and parking area to welcome community members.  The result: a drivable street during the rainy months, and a natural and beautiful bioswale to further define Marra Farms.  With JA Brennan.
