This event is free

Join SDF + the Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) for light food and beverage as we explore the transformative power of architectural design in fostering CommUNITY.

CommUNITY, SAF’s 26th Annual Architectural Model Exhibit, invites us to reflect on architecture as a catalyst for interaction, connections, and community, and as the carving of space where diverse communities converge and thrive. Each year, SAF’s Annual Architectural Model Exhibit celebrates the creativity of local and international designers and firms by connecting audiences to the process of architectural design. Through physical and digital models, architectural renderings, and other displays, this exhibit unveils how innovative architecture and design shape our everyday lives.

This year’s exhibit is curated by SAF’s Exhibit Committee of community members and features projects that use the power of curiosity to explore design’s role in bridging our communities. What happens when we highlight collective and collaborative narratives of the built environment? Curiosity opens our minds to challenge the status quo, expand knowledge, develop new relationships, and make new discoveries. We invite you to bring that open mind to our Seattle Design Festival Mixers, a new feature of the festival this year.

Event is free, registration is required.
