Event description

Description

As part of Design in Public's 2019 Seattle Design Festival, the Seattle 2030 District and Boeing welcome you to explore how we can recycle the beauty of Puget Sound to make Seattle more resilient and sustainable.

This summer, we created a design competition challenging students, engineers, and architects to come up with innovative ways to capture rainwater and reuse it in building operations. These solutions will help mitigate stormwater runoff, conserve of our City's potable water supply, and improve the performance of our buildings.

Come engage with the winning design team, who transformed the roof of the Expeditors Headquarters in downtown Seattle into a water recycling project, keeping over 400,000 gallons of stormwater out of our sewers and reducing their demand on municipal supply. There will also be the opportunity to connect with our amazing judges who represent some of the leading sustainability firms in our region.

We will also be discussing how these solutions can be replicated throughout Seattle and the pressing need to retrofit Seattle's downtown core to help protect Puget Sound. Come learn how we can transform our buildings to act as trees and help Seattle operate as its natural ecosystem.

Drinks and snacks will be provided.
