Sat, Jan 25 from 1pm - 4pm
CFAD Playlab is a free drop-in Saturday program for youth and families at the Center for Architecture and Design from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Held the last two Saturdays of the month, children and their chaperones are invited to explore different architecture and design focused activities and test their skills thinking critically about the built environment. Design challenges tie into the current exhibit and rotate once a quarter. The program is designed for all ages.
During the Balancing Act Exhibit CFAD Playlab attendees will be asked to consider the impact of technology on our future.
How will future technology affect us? One way is through public transportation. Seattle is the fastest growing city this century and as more people move to Seattle the worse traffic gets. Additionally, the fastest growing communities in King County are Kirkland, Kent, and Burien. These cities are miles away from downtown Seattle where most people work. How might city planners and new technology come together to improve public transportation without using existing roads? Could it be by air, water, land, or something else?
