Seattle is currently experiencing unprecedented growth in population with over 120,000 new residents expected by 2035. Given the ongoing discussion of housing issues, residential zoning, and transportation - VIA Architecture has developed a game using Legos that asks participants to think creatively about where in the city can best accommodate growth.

With a specialization in architecture, planning, and design within an urban context, VIA's hope is to generate ideas and facilitate the discussion of creating the best city possible with Block Party thrill seekers.
