EXPERIMENTING IN PUBLIC SPACE

New Technologies & Making in Seattle's Landscape Architecture

Date: May 3 to June 24, 2012
Time: 9 am to 5 pm
Location: AIA Seattle

As the second in a series of three exhibits curated over as many years, this exhibits builds on the legacy of Gas Works Park in and near Seattle. As designers, scientists, aestheticians, historians, and advocates we develop alternative languages of landscape and place through our words and images. This collection offers glimpses of the ways in which Seattle’s community of landscape architects have pushed the boundaries of practice to experiment in new technologies in landscape architecture as they address the multiple layers of public space. It features the various roles that landscape architects play in working with public spaces, particularly those that are suspect such as toxic post industrial sites.

The exhibit can be viewed at AIA Seattle, 1911 First Avenue, Seattle, Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 5:00. "Experimenting in Public Space: New Technologies and Making in Seattle's Landscape Architecture", hosted by AIA SEATTLE is curated by Thaisa Way, faculty in the Department of Landscape Architecture, Tera Hatfield, MLA candidate, and Mackenzie Waller, M’ARCH candidate of the College of Built Environments at the University of Washington.
