This event has passed.

The workshop will invite youth to think about the role of architecture beyond building design to create the kind of interactive, engaging spaces that bring cities to life. Participants will be asked to think about the meaning of “play” and to design their ideal space, inspired by their favorite places around their neighborhoods or the city of Seattle. Individual designs will be combined on the same site to create a mega play-city that kids of all ages and abilities can enjoy.


Our youth workshops encourage students ages 10-16 to tackle social, environmental, and engineering challenges. With an extended emphasis on more conceptual issues and demanding architectural concepts, these workshops are perfect for older students. Hosted at Seattle-area architectural offices, SAF staff and volunteer architects support participants as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking design challenges

Please note: All workshops will require masks for all youth, adults, and staff (no matter vaccination status) for the entirety of the event. All those who are eligible for vaccination are required to be vaccinated to attend and show vaccination proof upon entry.

We offer need-based scholarships for all SAF Youth Programs. For details about scholarships, email Program Director, Marina Szende at
