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.

Current CFAD Exhibit

Because It Rains

Presented by AIA Seattle
On display through May 25
At the Center for Architecture and Design


Recipient of AIA Seattle’s 2018 Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship, Laura Bartunek Assoc. AIA explored the concept of rain as a creative catalyst within design. Rain, so often approached as a universal foe to be deflected away from buildings, became the focus as both an ecological and cultural phenomenon that can challenge how we engage with our environment. Bartunek sought out five notorious rains found in Florida, New Mexico, Kauai, London and Norway, experiencing and studying the individuality of rain through the lens of architecture. The exhibit catalogs these tales of rain through a series of climate illustrations and architectural research models, asking and inspiring us to think differently about our weather.
