Next Exhibit | Wild Tensions: How Design Mediates the Outdoor Experience

SAF WILD TENSIONS LOGO 7.5 in. tall 300 dpi
On Display June 7 – August 18, 2018
Opening Night Reception June 7, 5:00–8:00 PM
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.

CfAD Family Day: Wild Tensions
Saturday, June 16, 10:00-2:00 PM
Center for Architecture & Design


Join the Seattle Architecture Foundation for a special Family Day celebrating the opening of Wild Tensions: How Design Impacts the Outdoor Experience! Create your own delicious snacks at our trail mix bar, build your own wilderness shelter, learn about the wild lives of animals who live with us right here in the city, and more! And of course, explore the exhibit to learn about our region’s distinctive relationship with the wilderness and outdoor recreation, and how architects design both the trails that get us there and buildings that help us protect our environment for future generations.

Now Accepting Entries for the 21st Annual Model Exhibit: Transparency

Deadline to submit: Friday, June 8, 2018

For 21 years 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. We are now accepting submissions for our 21st Annual Architectural Model Exhibit: Transparency, which will open to the public from August 30th – November 24th, 2018.

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.

For the 21st Annual Architectural Model Exhibit, SAF invites local designers to submit models produced for both conceptual and presentation use. Proposed entries should engage with our exhibit theme of Transparency. Possible avenues for exploration may include but are not limited to: community led and driven architecture; projects which emphasize community access, collaboration, or facilitate connections with the surrounding landscape and neighbors; transparency in regards to safety, materials, and environmental standards; and designs which engage aesthetically and creatively with the concept of transparency.

Questions? Contact Kathryn Higgins
