Join us for the Opening Night Reception for “Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies,” the latest exhibit @ the Center for Architecture & Design.
How does technology influence our urban experience? Whether we like it or not, technology is deeply rooted in our everyday lives. As emerging technologies continue to evolve, and our cities morph and adapt, the relationship between technology and our urban environments grows more complex.
Balancing Act explores the notion of balance by posing a series of questions about how we can focus emerging technologies towards the human experience and develop best urban practices to make our cities more livable, equitable, and sustainable. Through a process of reflecting on the past, listening to contemporary perspectives, and learning the current technological forces, the exhibition speculates imaginative futures and ongoing projects and initiatives.
- Urbanism & Emerging Technologies Curator’s Talk with Sae Kim | December 6, 12-1pm
- Data, Technology, and the Re-Imagined City | February 18, 5-7pm
Balancing Act will be on display @ the Center December 5, 2019 – February 22, 2020.
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.
