Seattle Design Festival events are free and require no RSVP unless otherwise noted.
This program will show how public and private stakeholders, as well as social services groups, are an integral part of the City of Seattle’s vision for a Waterfront for All. The program will explore how consideration of the existing community of residents and business owners can be transformed as we consider the neighborhood and prospective retail/commercial district as complement to design of the park, boulevard and transportation corridor. The program will orient attendants to the existing conditions of the waterfront and current design development of the reimagined public right-of-way. Through three current development case studies and three concept design vignettes, we will explore how private development and social services might engage and be informed by the Waterfront Seattle plans currently being developed by James Corner Field Operations.
