Project Descriptions
The Burke Museum, located on the campus of the University of Washington opened a completely re-imagined facility in a new location on October of 2019. The new Burke seeks to “break down traditional museum barriers, integrating exhibit spaces with research labs and visible collections storage and inviting visitors to be part of a working museum”. The 113,000 square foot museum is 66% larger than the old Burke facility. JGL scoured potential local vendors and identified the indigenous food truck “Off the Rez” as a potential vendor. Following a competitive bid process, Off the Rez was selected as the café operator and has opened this highly anticipated outlet.
