Welcome to the Seattle Architecture Foundation

The Seattle Architecture Foundation 24th Annual Architectural Model Exhibit

The Seattle Architecture Foundations offers a variety of exceptional programs and experiences for all ages that connect people to the architecture, design, and history of Seattle.

Our enthusiastic guides are excited to share their knowledge with the goal of facilitating a better understanding of architecture, landscape and urban design practices that shape our cities.

The important work of the Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) relies on the generosity of its members and supporters. By supporting SAF, members receive benefits and provide a valuable resource that helps shape our community.

Center for Architecture & Design (CfAD)

SAF is located at the Center for Architecture & Design. The Center is a dynamic public space for exhibits, programs, and conversations that explore design’s role in shaping cities.

We created the Center for Architecture & Design (CfAD) with Design in Public, AIA Seattle, and AIA Washington Council. By partnering at the Center, we leverage our expertise and resources to celebrate the power of design, advocate for policies affecting the built environment, and examine ideas to help Seattle meet the challenges it faces.

Programs and resources at CfAD are developed in large part with input from volunteers and members, mirroring their passion and interests. The programming enables the public to explore their curiosity about the role and impact of design, making this truly a center for all.
