Event description
Walking tour of Seattle government buildings that feature environmentally responsible design

About this Event

Seattle has put national leadership in environmental design at the center of government policy since the turn of the Twenty-first century. Beginning with public buildings and expanding into incentives for private sector development, Seattle has implemented policies to reach the intersecting goals of environmentally responsible design and population density in its downtown core. Join the author of Seattle Architecture: A Walking Guide to Downtown for a look at city government buildings developed under these policies: Seattle City Hall (2005, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson; Bassetti Architects), the Seattle Justice Center (2002, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson; Bassetti Architects; NBBJ) and Fire Station 10 (2008, Weinstein + AU), all LEED certified. The tour will also explore the ways the goals advanced by city policies is impacting private sector development’s role in contributing to a more dense and livable downtown.
