Seattle Architecture Foundation will hold a program from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 on Seattle's growth, how people meet their housing needs and how the search for maximum efficiency is driving architecture here.

The event at 1010 Western Ave. is part of SAF's Hello Seattle series.

The speakers are Ed Weinstein of Weinstein A+U, Rick Mohler of Mohler + Ghillino Architects, Chavi Hohm of Team Diva Real Estate and Seattle City Councilmember Rob Johnson. The moderator is Sarah Anne Lloyd, editor of Curbed Seattle.

Two examples of housing for a growing Seattle are Rooster, a 197-unit mixed-use transit-oriented apartment project at 900 N.E. 65th St. in the Roosevelt neighborhood, and Flip-Flop House(s), a house and barely attached accessory dwelling unit in an area of the Tangletown neighborhood zoned single-family.

Everything in the two units of the Tangletown project comes in diagonally opposing pairs: entrances, gardens, parking and corner windows. Rick Mohler and Jill Fresonke co-own the property.

A pre-talk reception starts at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $10 for members, at http://tiny.cc/700hpy/.
