Design in Public celebrates all the ways that design makes life better for Seattle. We nurture relationships among designers, citizens, city leaders, and future-thinking business innovators. We catalyze change by supporting imagination, vision and participation in the creation of the place we all want to live.
Design in Public is a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Design in Public was founded in 2011 to help Seattle appreciate the role and impact of design on urban life.
Design in Public believes in a future Seattle—recognized as a world design capital—where citizens, designers and leaders work together to create their shared best city.
