Issue 33.3 | The Creative Space-Time Continuum: Histories and Futures Inside the Rainier Oven Building (Winter 2015)

8.00
“The Rainier Oven Building is a testament to the idea that time’s discrete but pivotal role in creative practice should be considered when we look for ways to build and maintain hubs of space, place, and culture—that planning for and protecting the longevity of creative spaces is important.
— Issue 33.3 feature

Near the Central District in Seattle, South Jackson Street, Rainier Avenue South and Boren Avenue converge at a triangular, gravel lot. Like many places in the city, this corner had modest beginnings, as the site of an oven factory, a service station and an auto upholstery store. But when artist and designer Carol Bennett found herself in need of a space for her creative practice in the 1990s, the histories and character embedded in the oven factory’s bricks beckoned. In the years since, Bennett has overtaken all three buildings, reconfiguring them into studios and offices for a quietly buzzing cross section of Seattle’s creative community almost as unlikely as the original collection. This issue's feature, “The Creative Space-Time Continuum: Histories and Futures Inside the Rainier Oven Building” explores this unique project through written and visual essays. Feature essay: Erin Langner. Feature photography: Peter de Lory
