Now Accepting Entries for the 22nd Annual Model Exhibit: Symbiosis

Deadline to submit: Friday, May 31, 2019

For 22 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 22nd Annual Architectural Model Exhibit: Symbiosis, which will be open to the public from September 11th to November 23rd, 2019.

Symbiosis celebrates mutually beneficial relationships – the positive products and constructive outcomes of interdependence. Today’s interconnected world benefits from design based in this holistic concept, where the efficacy of group interaction is greater than the impact of acting alone. An architecture of symbiosis brings disparate entities together in an impactful whole.

For the 22nd Annual Architectural Model Exhibit, SAF invites local designers to submit models of varying media produced for both conceptual and presentation use. Participants are encouraged to explore different types of model formats and techniques. Entries should engage with our exhibit theme of Symbiosis. Possible avenues for investigation may include but are not limited to architecture’s reciprocal relationship with community, a city’s discourse with nature, or social media’s connection with the built environment.

Discover + Disrupt

Presented by AIA Seattle
On display June 6 – August 31
At the Center for Architecture and Design


City systems operate similarly to people. Much of the day is concerned with utilitarian, functional, and obvious needs. Budgets are allocated to potholes and traffic alleviation like paying rent and filling a pantry with groceries. The blueprint for the average city is largely shaped more by cost, regiment, and efficiency than whimsy and humanity. When moments of delight do exist, art is often corralled into commercial spaces such as advertisements or limited public art initiatives, unable to infiltrate the rest of city life.

DISCOVER + DISRUPT, is a call to balance in the way art functions in a city. Through the art-forward exploration of their own bodies of work, the artists envision a world where humanity’s desire for beauty, and exploration are met, balancing functional city systems with unexpected moments of whimsy and delight.

Electric Coffin is Seattle-based artist collaboration between Duffy De Armas and Stefan Hofmann. Exploring the intersection of art and commerce, they are fueled by a number of sources both material and ephemeral, these sources encompass knowledge, culture, and the physical remains of industry, mass production, communication, and commerce. They represent the highs and lows of human achievement–the sacred and the profane. They together create the combustible admixture that manifest into large-scale projects, installations, and objects.
