Balancing Act: Data, Technology, and the Re-imagined City
Reception from 5:00-5:30 PM
Program from 5:30-7:00 PM
How do we focus emerging technologies to create livable, equitable and sustainable cities? How are designers, technologists, and urban planners re-imagining cities of the future to be more personalized, automated and data-driven? Come join the Seattle Architecture Foundation for a discussion around the future of cities and Seattle’s position at the forefront of balancing technology, data, and social values in the public realm.
This discussion is part of AIA Seattle’s exhibition, Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies. Designed and curated by Boston-based design firm CBT for AIA Boston, the exhibition explores how technology influences our urban experience and the possibilities to focus emerging technologies towards the human experience can develop best urban practices.
About the Center for Architecture & Design
AIA Seattle is located at the Center for Architecture & Design. The Center is a dynamic public space for exhibits, programs, and conversations that explore design’s role in shaping cities.
We created the Center for Architecture & Design (CfAD) with Design in Public, Seattle Architecture Foundation and AIA Washington Council. By partnering at the Center, we leverage our expertise and resources to celebrate the power of design, advocate for policies affecting the built environment, and examine ideas to help Seattle meet the challenges it faces.
AIA Seattle, Seattle Architecture Foundation, and Design in Public host theme related programs throughout the year at the Center for Architecture & Design, including festivals, exhibitions, tours, lectures, competitions and classes featuring respected and new voices. These programs educate, inspire, and challenge people of all ages, from seasoned designers, to those encountering architecture and design for the first time.
The Center for Architecture & Design is the destination for professional connections, lifelong learning, and resources to network and advocate for policies based on quality design. It’s a place where we can engage professionals from all design disciplines and provides meeting space for collaboration and dialogue with peers, partners, government leaders, and the public.
Programs and resources at the Center for Architecture & Design are developed in large part with input from volunteer and members, mirroring their passion and interests. The programming enables the public to explore their curiosity about the role and impact of design, making this truly a center for all.
Our calendar includes a full listing of AIA Seattle programs, both at the Center and around the city! For a full lineup of programs happening at the Center, please visit the CfAD website, cfadseattle.org.
