A window into life in the extreme climate conditions of Hurricane Ridge.
Sitting at 5,242 ft, the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center encompasses stunning, sweeping views of the Olympic range in clear weather. However, life on aptly named “Hurricane Ridge” is dictated by the wind and snow that shapes its climate year-round. Olympic National Park is currently in the process of developing new interpretive media for one of its two top highly visited visitor centers. In preparation for this work, EDX collaborated with the park as well as local stakeholders to conduct workshops to prepare for the planning and design phases of the new exhibits. Designs will provide new content in the entrance/lobby area, fireplace and lounge orientation area, existing exhibit gallery, and theater.
