23rd Annual Model Exhibit: Iterations

Exhibit runs August 12 – December 6, 2020
View Virtual Exhibit


Architecture is often presented as a finished product, but each body of work has a life of its own, changing over time and affecting the surrounding context in unexpected ways. Iterations celebrates the germination of a design and how it’s nurtured over time through the exploration of writing, drawing, model and material studies. Iterations examines the dynamics of the design process, demonstrates how it leads to a final concept, and illustrates how a completed project affects the ongoing evolution of the built environment.

Exhibitors: DLR Group | Graphite Design Group | HEWITT | Jayna McClaran | Johnston Architects | Juliette Dubroca | LMN Architects | Mithun | Olson Kundig | PUBLIC47 Architects | Signal Architecture + Research | Thomas Cheney Architects | WC STUDIO Architects | Weber Thompson | Wittman Estes

Previous Exhibit: Proactive Practice

Presented by AIA Seattle
On Display March 5, 2020 – July 25, 2020
At the Center for Architecture and Design


As speculative development and fast-paced growth transform urban space, architects must not be complacent in service to the market economy. How can we practice architecture as caretakers for our communities and reclaim an active role in the production of space? Proactive Practice examines how architects self-initiate projects to nurture vibrant and adaptive communities.

Through the lens of five architects’ practices and their progressive work, different models and scales of intervention are presented to encourage us to question the malleability of our environment. This exhibition serves as a call for all creative disciplines to engage as activists in the search for new urban potentialities.

As the recipients of AIA Seattle’s 2019 Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship, Jackie Hensy Assoc. AIA and Tristan Walker Assoc. AIA traveled to New Orleans, Mexico City, London, and Rotterdam to interview these practices and understand the unique processes and philosophies behind their self-initiated work.This exhibition was designed in collaboration with Robert Baxter, an independent designer.
