SPECIAL EVENTS

Design Soiree

DesignSoiree_E-News_216x165_Yellow
Design Soiree is a dynamic new series of exclusive design-oriented events
Series runs August – November


The Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) invites you behind the scenes with Seattle designers to experience Seattle’s most unique architectural spaces! From August through October, enjoy exclusive events with designers in some of Seattle’s most interesting homes, design studios and a range of commonly inaccessible spaces. Each festive event includes food, drinks and activities curated by each host — architects, engineers, contractors, artists and more.

While enjoying yourself among colleagues, friends and new acquaintances, feel good knowing you are helping Seattle Architecture Foundation connect thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds to the architecture, design and history of Seattle. Funds raised through these events support the various programs offered by SAF, including exhibits, tours, talks and programs that teach youth how design addresses social issues. SAF reaches more than 6,000 people a year through its programs, events and outreach activities.
