Learn about rain gardens and other forms of green infrastructure that you can incorporate in your yard and neighborhood. The 12,000 Rain Garden campaign for Puget Sound has been elevating green infrastructure strategies since 2011 and provides tons of resources and support for designers, communities, and home owners looking to turn the tide on pollution. Join us for this interactive workshop and start planning your dream garden.

This program is held in conjunction with the AIA Seattle Exhibit Because It Rains, which runs through May 25 at the Center for Architecture and Design.

(Past Event) Because it Rains: How Rain Shapes Seattle

April 16, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
Reception at 5:30
At the Center for Architecture and Design


The words “Rain” and “Seattle” are nearly synonymous with each other. For those that live in this city, each individual has experienced the beauty, chaos, and monotony that is Seattle’s rain. The characteristics of rain, whether it be smell, sound, touch, or the emotional feelings triggered, have shaped the built environment and ethos of Seattle.

The AIA Exhibit “Because it Rains” examines the individuality of rain events across the United States and internationally to discover design responses to varying characteristics of rain. The goal of this panel is share stories and experiences of how Rain and its unique characteristics have shaped the built environment in Seattle today, and looking toward the future, how the today’s built environment can respond differently.

Panelists:
Peregrine Church, Founder Rainworks
Mónica Guzmán, Co-Founder & Director, The Evergrey
John Sundstrom, Chef-Owner, Lark, Slab Sandwiches + Pie, Southpaw
Jordan Zlotoff, Project Manager, Landscape Architect, Berger Partnership

Moderator:
Laura Bartunek Assoc. AIA & Curator, Because it Rains



(Past Event) A Conversation Behind Sanctuary: Design for Belonging

February 19, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
At the Center for Architecture and Design


Join us for a discussion alongside the competition winners and judges of the current exhibit, Sanctuary: Design for Belonging. The design competition focuses on creating safe spaces and resources for refugees and immigrants, and how those methods can benefit those in search for a place of belonging. The panelist will discuss their thought process behind their design entry, inspirations, and how this will positively impact our growing economy.
