The World of Speed started as our clients life long dream and vision to share an inspirational story about Northwest Motorsports and the moxie and moonshot of those in that era. The property selected bore none of those traits, but its location was perfect. Siteworks Design team was inspired by the vision and began the transformation never losing site of the goal. The project was to transform an 80,000 square foot 1980’s concrete tilt into the vision held for the World of Speed. Siteworks successfully captured the narrative of midcentury motorsports through interactive displays, artful structural upgrades, mid century glazing techniques, and a GT 350 environmental Super graphics. After 2 years in design and construction Siteworks finished ahead of schedule with happy clients and a friendship made to last a life time.

The World of Speed museum is a mid-century modern time capsule that celebrates the history and global significance of Northwest and American motorsports in a fun and educational setting for all ages.
