Wild Tensions: How Design Mediates the Outdoor Experience

SAF WILD TENSIONS LOGO 7.5 in. tall 300 dpi
On display through August 18, 2018
At the Center for Architecture and Design


Exactly how authentic do we want our outdoor experience to be, and how far do we have to go to find it? How can we protect our natural treasures in the midst of explosive regional population growth? Can we mitigate that human pressure on these environments by leveraging urban wilderness? Wild Tensions: How Design Mediates the Outdoor Experience explores the inherent tensions between our pursuit of the wilderness experiences that are so integral to our Pacific Northwest identity and the environmental impact of the built interventions that allow us access to wild spaces.

The 21st Annual Model Exhibit: Transparency

On display August 30 – November 24, 2018
At the Center for Architecture and Design


For 21 years 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.

A healthy and productive civic society rests on a foundation of trust and openness among citizens, government, and private organizations. As our news and conversations are filled with suspicions and conspiracy, and as we live through massive demographic changes in our cities due to gentrification, immigration, aging, and displacement, how can the work of architects and designers unite our communities for the better in the midst of civic upheaval? This year’s theme – Transparency – encourages entrants to explore the rich interplay between architectural design and civic life.

Exhibitors include:

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson | BUILD LLC | CallisonRTKL | DLR Group | Goodspeed Architecture & Hewitt | Mithun | NBBJ | Olson Kundig | Sawhorse Revolution | Schemata Workshop | Signal Architecture & Research | Weber Thompson | ZGF Architects LLP

Thank you to our Platinum Exhibit Sponsors:
