PNW Materiality ｜ Building Technology of Seattle's Past
Tue, Mar 21, 2017 from 6:30pm - 8pm
Materiality, a part of our living environment that has been influencing our experience since the beginning of time. Just as the look and feel of a cave wall providing shelter shaped how a cave person may have felt in their living space, the materials used in built structures today, both inside and out, influence our encounters with the spaces we occupy. Come take a journey through history as we learn about materials in the PNW that truly give us a sense of time and space and how everything from technology to sustainability to our own personal tastes have influenced their evolution.
This event includes a free reception from 5:30- 6:30, light fare and beverages will be provided.
