Designing for Community: Transparency Panel Discussion
Tue, Nov 6, 2018 from 5pm - 7pm
What does transparency look like when designing architecture for the greater community? In the popular imagination, cities are associated with their biggest buildings and largest monuments. But in reality the city is more a sum of parts - small-scale civic buildings and public spaces: libraries, schools, community centers, parks, and playgrounds. We’ve invited three architects featured in the Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 21st Annual Model Exhibit: Transparency to discuss their process. From conceptual work to your own back yard (we’re looking at you Ballard), the models included all approach transparency from a different angle- creating multiple perspectives on community and design. Join us for this illuminating discussion.
