    This event spotlights 10 landmarks in Seattle and surrounding areas from the past, present and future. We’ve selected one landmark per decade over the past 10 decades to help celebrate this year’s 10 year anniversary of SDF. Check out our virtual map on the IIDA NPC website to see all of the landmark locations and to learn more about each landmark’s inspiring history and design. Our goal is to introduce and educate the community about the rich history that exists in our neighborhoods, including how they have been shaped and continue to evolve. We encourage participants to visit the featured landmarks on this list and share with us how a given landmark has inspired them by submitting photos, sketches, poems, and other forms of creative medium. We will accept submissions on our IIDA NPC website or via our social media platforms using the hashtags #thennowfuture, IIDAxSDF, and #IIDANPC. By making a submission, you could win a print of the custom Seattle landmarks map created by local graphic artist, Erin Wallace.
