SEATTLE DESIGN COMMISSION IS SEEKING IDEAS FOR HOLDING PATTERS

City of Seattle

Have you noticed how many lots have been left empty or partially developed due to the stalled economy? These vacant project sites are all around Seattle. Unattractive and unbecoming of our city, we pass by them every day: empty holes, barren plains of gravel, voids in the city fabric. How can we convert these eyesores to opportunities? The Seattle Design Commission wants your ideas for Holding Patterns, interim uses for stalled project sites. They are seeking concepts to transform the following types of stalled project sites around the city: holes in the ground, surface lots and ongoing construction above or below street level. The Design Commission is welcoming any and all ideas. Artists, designers, non-profits, businesses, developers, students, astronauts, everyone is invited to contribute ideas. Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged. Email submissions to valerie.Kinast@seattle.gov no later than Monday, May 24. Submission guidelines can be found at the above link.
