Exhibit runs September 14 – November 18
At the Center for Architecture and Design


For two decades the Seattle Architecture Foundation has hosted the Architectural Model Exhibit, an opportunity for local architects and designers to connect and share their work with the Seattle community. Resurgence: The 20th Annual Model Exhibit, will be open to the public from September 14th – November 18th, 2017.

In a time of intense cultural and social change, Resurgence challenges designers to explore the ways in which their work intersects with the growth of grassroots and community movements, the changing conceptions of what cities can be and do, and renewed interest in formerly neglected places, spaces, and ideas.

Green Buildings Roundtable
November 14, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
At the Center for Architecture and Design


Living, LEED, Petal, Passive, Green – the world of environmentally conscious architecture produces its fair share of jargon and professional designations, a number of which are found in Model Exhibit projects. In this panel we’ll explore a few of the projects being built in Seattle right now, and design teams will discuss the differences between these standards, the challenges in meeting them, and why it’s important to the environmental health of our city and planet.

Projects Featured:
Bridge Way Living Building Project – Scot Carr, PUBLIC47 Architects & Brett Phillips, Unico Properties
Pike Passive – Emily Doe, Project Architect, Weber Thompson
Watershed – Myer Harrell, Sustainability Director, Weber Thompson

Conceptual Architecture

Conceptual Architecture Roundtable
November 16, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
At the Center for Architecture and Design


As firms increasingly turn to renderings and VR in lieu of physical models, the meaning and value of the practice of model making is more relevant than ever. This is particularly true when speaking of designs that were never intended for life beyond their models. Join SAF and local architects in a discussion around the conceptual pieces featured in the show, and the place of conceptual work in architectural practice.

Projects Featured:
The Urchin Citadel – Miriam Larson, Story
Multimodal Tranpsortation Hub – Siddharth Jadhav for CallisonRKTL
Salvaged Witness: KeyArena Meets Nowness – Kejia Zhang & Xiaoxi Jiao
