BLOCK PARTY INSTALLATION - Smaller Smarter Pavilion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This interactive installation invites festival attendees to creatively and dynamically define a space to share with others. The objective is to engage the community in a conversation about small living in Seattle and how the spaces we live in today can and will change in the future. We see this installation as a mobile educational outreach tool with a focus about small /smart living. We want to raise questions of what this installation is or what it could be. Is it a house, backyard cottage, temporary shelter, tiny home, ADU, shed, tent, etc? The installation will move around different areas and neighborhoods of the city to engage the public and get feedback and response.
