Message from the Executive Director
News & updates from Lisa Richmond, Executive Director of AIA Seattle + Design in Public.
September 2015 UPDATE
I hope you’ve heard the exciting news that AIA Seattle, Design in Public, Seattle Architecture Foundation, and AIA Washington Council will be moving into a shared home later this year, the new Center for Architecture & Design. With this move, a world of possibilities opens up for us to connect, inform, and engage both our industry and the public, exploring how design shapes and inspires vibrant communities.
The Center will be a place to connect and learn through exhibits, public programs, and professional education. Thematically organized programming will touch on relevant issues, including design for health and fitness, urban housing and density, preservation and adaptation in a changing city, and many more.
But we also envision it as your place: a home away from home for AIA members and our industry partners, somewhere you can connect and share ideas with colleagues in the design community. As always, AIA Seattle is for and about our members; your interests, knowledge, and volunteer involvement will be a welcome and critical part of the Center’s success. I hope to see you there!
