    Seattle, the country’s eighteenth largest city with the third largest population of people experiencing homelessness, faces a crisis. With businesses closed during the pandemic, the unhoused have limited access to hand washing facilities, making its most vulnerable population more vulnerable still. Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, the city auditor found that the city fell woefully short in providing enough hygiene facilities; this situation was exacerbated by Governor Inslee’s ‘Stay at Home’ Order on March 25th, 2020.

    The Seattle Street Sink is a seemingly simple, bottom up, community-based project that both augments and critiques this lack of hygiene infrastructure in the midst of a public health crisis. The project provides access to clean water, ensuring that all members of the community are able to protect themselves.
