Design in Depth Lecture Series
Join us for engaging dialogue on how our communities grow and thrive thanks to creative ideas that re-invent a neighborhood's character while maintaining true to its history through adaptive re-use and other development strategies.
Events are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm.
Doors open at 6pm.
Thanks to Season Sponsor, LMN!
Pike Place Market
March 11, Pike Place Market Atrium Loft
Pike Place Market is a Seattle icon. How do we preserve the market and yet enable it to grow? Are we saving the right things? What do we want the market to be like in 50 years' time? How does it anchor the neighborhood now, and how will the new connection to the waterfront change the character of the market, or enhance it? This evening will be an exploration of opinions, the balance between development and preservation, and the directions future growth of the market might take.

Finding the Event Space -- look for signage:
By Stairs: If you stand next to Rachel the Piggy Bank, under the Clock Sign, and facing Pike Place Fish, there is an upward staircase on your left (just to the left of Mt. Townsend Creamery). The Atrium Loft will be at the top of those stairs.
By Elevator: From First Ave & Pike, at the newsstand, walk inside the Arcade away from the street. There is a hallway on the left just past DeLaurenti's, opposite Seattle Bagel Bakery. Just through the hallway is an elevator on the left-hand side; the meeting rooms are on floor 3.
Driving Directions (to the Market Parking Garage)
Parking: Market Parking Garage @1531 Western Ave, Seattle, offers an evening flat rate from 5pm for $5

Capitol Hill prides itself on proximity to downtown while boasting a mix of uses almost absent from the neighboring business district. New mixed-use projects compete with the architectural soul of the neighborhood, rooted in structures of the old 'autorow' and historic housing stock. Can this welcome density and diversity be integrated into the neighborhood without losing its architectural character?

Beer has always flowed in Seattle, but in recent times, this drink has enjoyed a surge in popularity, with the Ballard neighborhood as the latest epicenter of new microbreweries. How has this micro-industry re-appropriated the neighborhood and shaped its community culture. What challenges and design issues arose during the rehabilitation of Ballard's old buildings into breweries?
