SEATTLE DESIGN IN ACTION

Throughout the city's history, Seattle design activism has engaged architects & planners with public processes shaping the urban form.  Many observe the lasting imprint of the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exhibition & the 1962 Seattle World's Fair as formative phenomena, & the influence of Allied Arts of Seattle.
Postings here document programs of urban vision:
*
Action: Better City I (1967-68)
*
BLUEPRINT: for Architecture (1978-88)
*
The Gang of Five (1981-82)
*
ARCADE (1981-present)
* space.city (1997-present)
*
action: better city II (1998-2004)

In April 2013 and January 2014, veteran participants in these programs shared reflections of the impact of design in action on their communities and their careers:
