Join us tomorrow for a UW//LA Tea Talk with Raffaella Sini

Gould 322
4:30-5:30 pm
Wed. Jan. 22, 2020

Recent years have seen a surge in “temporary gardens.” The flexibility, ephemerality and new challenges of this instillation type have made non-permanent landscapes a creative and stimulating testing ground for designers. By placing an emphasis on design process rather than product—that is, by acquiring the status of a work of art—temporary landscapes are making a relevant contribution to discussions of temporary urbanism and landscape architecture.

A landscape architect and architect, Sini’s research, teaching and practice take a humanities and design-centered perspective, with a focus on cultural landscapes.

I just thought about the fact that there were students over there today.

REPOST from Jeff Hou: Introducing the UW Urban Commons Lab -- 18 years after our first project began😅. The site archives the work we have produced over the years with the help of many collaborators, community partners, students, staff, and faculty at UW Seattle. Check it out!

Congratulations!

Shots from the conclusion to the 2019 ScanDesign master studio. Work is inspired by students experiences during a study tour of Copenhagen and Malmö public spaces that contribute to climate resilience.

Students worked with Seattle 2030 District and Capitol Hill EcoDistricts Public Life project to develop design ideas and typologies to inspire retrofit of streets and urban spaces that employ natural processes to create a more livable district, while solving the areas stormwater issues and future city water and wastewater demands.

Designs aim to cultivate and enrich public life—through and in the public realm of streets, plazas, parks + leftover spaces—to address climate change impacts.

[The protests] show us the capacity of citizens in designing the city. If people can be enormously creative and capable during the protests, surely they have the ability to participate in making planning and design decisions.”
