Design In Depth: Growth for Communities, Not as Commodities
Tue, Jun 16, 2020 from 5:30pm - 7pm
What if we could build a new Seattle neighborhood from scratch? Students at the University of Washington College of Built Environments addressed this question in their group Studio as they imagined innovative concepts for the future of the Interbay neighborhood north of the Magnolia Bridge. Come join the Seattle Architecture Foundation for a discussion with Rick Mohler, UW Associate Professor, and the students who participated in the studio to discuss their vision of what a new Seattle neighborhood might look like.
This discussion is inspired by an exhibit produced though AIA Seattle's Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship, Proactive Practice. Designed and curated by Jaclyn Hensy and Tristan Walker, their research analyzes the various methods architects can utilize to understand potentialities in a project and asks how can architects and planners practice design as caretakers of our communities and reclaim an active role in the production of space? On exhibit now through July 25th at the Center for Architecture and Design.
