Balance in Design of the City

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until Aug 25, 2019


Seattle neighborhoods are the product of trying to find the best balance between economic, social, and environmental outcomes – but is there a way to get to more equitable benefits to everyone who lives in a particular place?

AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable (DRT) and the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) invite visitors to the Seattle Design Festival Block Party on August 24 & 25 to weigh in and apply the principles of “intelligent urbanism” to common space planning for Seattle areas like Rainier Valley, the Central District, and Beacon Hill.

The outdoor workshop and installation uses the ten axioms that are part of the Principles of Intelligent Urbanism — including environmental sustainability, heritage conservation, appropriate technology, infrastructure-efficiency, placemaking, social access, transit-oriented development, regional integration, human scale, and institutional integrity — to demonstrate how Seattle can create healthy and sustainable communities.

The Seattle Design Festival Block Party in Lake Union Park (next to MOHAI) is a vibrant, free, two-day outdoor event that celebrates the powerful ways design affects our lives. Thousands of visitors attend to view, touch and interact with art, design and architecture installations, performances, and tours.  Visit the festival website to learn more about the Seattle Design Festival (August 16 – 25) at designinpublic.org.
