Level Up Your Street!
Sat, Aug 17, 2019 from 10am - 12pm
Your street, your vision. What would it look like if YOU designed a section of Capitol Hill? What would a leveled up street look like? The Seattle Architecture Foundation and Board & Vellum invite youth ages 10-16 to take the lead in reinvigorating the streetscape by designing and modeling their own parklet.
During this two hour workshop participants will learn about parklets and their potential to change and challenge traditional city landscapes, gain hands on experience creating three dimensional models, and work alongside local architects and landscape architects from the Board & Vellum office. Each participant will have the opportunity to design a parklet that will improve, or “level up”, the pedestrian experience.
This event is part of the ninth annual Seattle Design Festival. The festival features citywide tours, exhibits, outdoor installations, activities, neighborhood design crawls and more from August 16 -25. The 2019 theme explores how we achieve the BALANCE that is needed for our earth, our communities and our families.
