"Plaza at City Hall" Bellevue Off The Beaten Path Tip by glabah

Bellevue Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 18 photos

  Giant Metal Tree Stump in Bellevue City Hall Plaza
by glabah

Located just two blocks west of Interstate 405, the new Bellevue City Hall is a huge edifice of a structure, and includes a street level plaza with several works of art in it, plus a glass meeting hall.

The works of art include a large metal reproduction of an overturned tree stump (perhaps indicating just how much the entire lumber industry has been overturned by the technology industry in the local economy?), and two statues that were gifts from sister city Hualien, Taiwan.

Somewhere on the city of Bellevue web site (below) they probably have some sort of description of this plaza, but I have not been able to find it.
