AIA Seattle's Urban Design Forum will hold a program titled “A City To Love: Visions of a Public Realm” from 5:30 to 7 p.m. July 18 at 1010 Western Ave. in Seattle.
Seattle has about 14,000 acres of rights-of-way, which make up 29 percent of the urban environment. The program will look at what can be done to enhance the ecological, cultural and social function of these shared public spaces while increasing their capacity as the city becomes more dense.
Presenters are Rick Mohler of Mohler + Ghillino Architects and the University of Washington, and Barbara Swift of Swift Co. They were fellows from UW's Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies and traveled to Auckland, New Zealand, to study how rights-of-way are used there.
