We’ve come to know Seattle as an innovation hub in the digital information age, but where does Seattle rank as an innovator of building construction & material technology across the globe? How will technological advancements in 3D printing shape construction in the future?

Center for Architecture & Design
1010 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104


Materiality, a part of our living environment that has been influencing our experience since the beginning of time. Just as the look and feel of a cave wall providing shelter shaped how a cave person may have felt in their living space, the materials used in built structures today, both inside and out, influence our encounters with the spaces we occupy. Come take a journey through history as we learn about materials in the PNW that truly give us a sense of time and space and how everything from technology to sustainability to our own personal tastes have influenced their evolution.

Live work play | Suburban vs Urban | Masterplans

216x165
Tuesday January 17, 6:30-8:00 PM
Center for Architecture & Design
1010 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104


As the city of Seattle grows and the urban landscape becomes denser, many residents are moving to surrounding suburbs. Although there are many lifestyle differences between these urban and suburban locations, their common desire to create communities where one can live, work and play is apparent in their built environments. From business campuses, city masterplans, housing developments to parks and mass transit; all reflect a philosophy of urban design that evolves based on physical and cultural proximity to major urban centers. Join us as we explore the broader contrasts and similarities between Seattle’s urban city and the surrounding suburb.
A city’s master plan is the urban planning blue print for the future of a city. This talk will take a look at how Seattle’s ‘master plan’ has transformed over many years and how its surrounding neighbors are shaping their own master plan.

Speakers:
Lyle Bicknell, City of Seattle
Miranda Redinger, City of Shoreline
