Exactly how authentic do we want our outdoor experience to be, and how far do we have to go to find it? How can we protect our natural treasures in the midst of explosive regional population growth? Can we mitigate that human pressure on these environments by leveraging urban wilderness? Presented by Seattle Architecture Foundation, Wild Tensions: How Design Mediates the Outdoor Experience explores the inherent tensions between our pursuit of the wilderness experiences that are so integral to our Pacific Northwest identity and the environmental impact of the built interventions that allow us access to wild spaces.
Join us Thursday, June 7, 2018 5pm – 8pm for the opening night reception, which will include brief remarks by exhibit curator Ellen K. Southard, Site Story.
