Looking to better understand Seattle building codes? Join us for our 2019 Code Series.
Seattle has over an estimated 1,000 unreinforced masonry structures. These URMs are highly susceptible to severe damage in earthquakes. URM What?will explain the geologic hazards facing Seattle and why URMs are susceptible to this intense damage. In the second half of the class, retrofit techniques and city policies addressing URMs will be addressed in detail.
Join WiD + DRT for a series of group discussions on building a more equitable architecture industry in Seattle and beyond.
Despite increasing diversity in students and young professionals entering the field, architecture remains a remarkably homogeneous profession. How can we help retain more diverse voices in our profession? As practitioners, what can we do? Using topics and resources from the just-released AIA Guides for Equitable Practice, this event series is a recurring monthly, small group based discussion. Each month we will gather to discuss a different topic, and explore how we can promote equity, diversity and inclusion within our own firms.
The AIA Seattle Social Hour Series is a bimonthly gathering presented by the Seattle International Architecture Forum and Diversity Roundtable committees to encourage connections amongst diverse practitioners within the Seattle design community.
