Seattle Design Festival 2019: BALANCE | Design in Public & AIA Seattle

 

The theme of this year's Seattle Design Festival was Balance: a dynamic state of equilibrium.

RAI's exhibit, constructed with the help of Marpac Construction, was called CENTERED. The exhibit interpreted the theme of Balance in terms of the individual and the community.

Why is design important for us to achieve balance as individuals and communities? As visitors interact in and around the exhibit, they will exchange shared values like diversity, social responsibility, integrity, quality, community, and service to achieve a sense of balance. We welcome other values to be considered and added in a collaborative and inclusive way that will help expand and open up the exhibit centered on respect for one another. Our hope is that by design—symbiotic relationships can form and support a better understanding of the built environment while inspiring us to work for a world in balance.
