Chihuly Garden and Glass is an exhibit in the Seattle Center showcasing the studio glass of Dale Chihuly. It opened in May 2012 at the former site of the Fun Forest.[1]

The project features three primary components: the Garden, the Glasshouse, and the Interior Exhibits, with significant secondary spaces including a 90-seat café with additional outdoor dining, a 50-seat multi-use theater and lecture space, retail and lobby spaces, and extensive public site enhancements beyond the Garden.[2] The 100-foot-long installation inside of the Glasshouse is one of Chihuly's largest suspended sculptures.[3] Designed with the help of architect Owen Richards, the facility was awarded LEED silver certification from the USGBC.[4]
