Design in Public was founded in 2011 as a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle to promote a public dialogue about the role and impact of design on urban life and celebrate all the ways that design makes life better for Seattle. AIA Seattle provides the architecture community with resources and relationships to make a difference through design. Founded in 1894, AIA Seattle is a not-for-profit professional association of architects, allied professionals, and laypeople. AIA Seattle is committed to excellence in architecture and service to the public. Find our more on the AIA Seattle website.
