Seattle Architecture Foundation: Places Between Spaces: Seattle’s Pocket Parks

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $10-$20.

Civics

Pocket parks are popping up all over all kinds of cities because they are great at regenerating surrounding communities. In this installment of The Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 2012-13 lecture series, Developing Community Through Design, a panel shares examples of small urban parks and the design processes behind them. Panelists include Nancy Rottle, professor of landscape architecture, University of Washington; Charles Anderson, Cooper Hewitt National Design Award nominee and Olympic Sculpture Park landscape designer; and Keith McPeters of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, whose work includes the Bill &Melinda Gates Foundation Campus and Seattle Civic Center Masterplan. Brice Maryman, a member of Seattle’s Board of Parks Commissioners and a landscape architect with SvR Design Company, moderates. Presented by the Seattle Architecture Foundation.

Advance tickets are $15/$10 students, seniors, and SAF members at www.brownpapertickets.com; $20 three days before the lecture and at the door beginning at 6 pm. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
