The Bezos Center for Innovation is an exhibition space on 860 Terry Avenue North in Seattle, Washington and it was designed by the Olson Kundig Architects practice with multimedia and other interactive experiences along with artifacts from the creative history of Seattle.

The project is supported by Jeff and MackKenzie Bezos and it features 5000 square feet of exhibition space layered with narratives facilitating the discovery and immersion in the creative process. The beginning of the exhibition is the question “What is innovation?” framing a dialogue in which the visitors can add their own perspectives through writing, drawing or building answers.

There is an Idea Lab which invites the visitors to identify with and try to solve some of the most pressing challenges of the day, while the We Shape our City section allows the visitors to add their photos and ideas to the mix. The Seattle Patent Tree offers a history of the Pudget Sound region and its inventions and there is also a large graphic novel telling the history of the Seattle-based organizations.
