As part of a Design + Justice studio, Sarah Wallace @ecallawharas (MLA+MUP 2020) explored use of digital collage to create a voice and visual tool that can help community members to represent a collective identity for themselves. Graphics are based on interviews with the Othello Village Tiny Home Community, in which community members answered: What makes our lives better? What makes us feel happy? What makes us feel sad? What makes us feel secure?

“As designers in the era of climate change and mass extinction, we are called to confront an imminent future in which many endemic species will no longer be resilient in their native landscapes. The resulting void could accelerate habitat degradation and loss of ecosystem function associated with invasive species and barren landscapes.”

Rather than allow for the extinction of plants that could thrive through future changes and make herculean efforts to nurse “native” plants that are no longer locally adaptive, in Emergent Response-Ability, Claudia Sackett Hennum @claudia.lucille proposes an approach to designing for biodiversity that acknowledges that we are in a time of regime shift rather than ecological crisis.

Hong Kongs first Lennon Wall appeared in 2014. In 2019, in light of anti-government protests throughout the city, more than 100 Lennon Walls popped up. Covered in post-its and other creative displays, these Lennon Walls are a spontaneous and collective form of public communication. UW LA professor Jeff Hou examines use of Lennon Walls by citizens and activists throughout the movement in an article for The Conversation.

Discovery Park has been marked by two key failures concerning human management of its landscape and adjacent wastewater treatment facility: a disastrous combined sewer overflow event and a significantly eroding bluff line. What happens when we question what we define as failure? In reexamining erosion as a geologic and shoreline necessity, can bluffs really fail? Can we harness the materiality of these on-site feeder bluffs, incorporating them as a natural shoreline intervention along the adjacent, aging wastewater treatment plant?

In this project, Sarah Bartosh and Sophie Krause speculate the ability to harness failing Discovery Park bluff erosion as a sediment source for reshaping the shoreline and restoring historical ecologies from colonization and development. Read the full feature in EXTENTS Issue III @ uwasla.org

On Thursday night, Julie Parrett will co-present work looking at disaster preparedness/post-disaster recovery planning as part of the Runsted Fellows Program. Please join if you are available.

Thursday, 2/20 – 5:30-7:00

5:30 Lecture and Discussion – Gould 322

6:30 Reception – Gould Court

State and national projections suggest the Seattle metropolitan region can expect decades of continued urbanization.

While crises stemming from rapid population growth dominate urban planning, policy, and design circles, looming natural disasters and impacts from climate change require our attention.  

The 2019 UW Runstad fellows look to Japan: an extreme, more disaster-prone version of our region and a global leader in terms of emergency preparedness and post-discovery planning for insights, lessons and opportunities for the Central Puget Sound as we Prepare for a Certain Future.

A discussion with the Fellows and other UW Faculty researching post-discovery planning will follow the presentation.
