Urban Design Forum

The Urban Design Forum serves members and the community by bringing forward critical issues facing Puget Sound neighborhoods and cities, in order to inform, engage, and support advocacy by AIA Seattle members and others who share a concern for the quality of the built environment.

The Urban Design Forum hosts monthly panel discussions, case studies and presentations. Previous topics have included such topics as bicycle and pedestrian master planning, transit-oriented development, neighborhood planning and more.


The Urban Design Forum typically meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month at the end of the workday (location varies). To receive upcoming meeting and event details, subscribe to our email list. AIA Seattle members, allied members and sponsors are encouraged to join as well as other professionals in the design community.

You can also get connected through the Urban Design Forum Facebook group!

The Urban Design Forum serves AIA Seattle’s Society vision.
