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.

Our two-city Architecture for Health Committee returns for its spring program, focusing on healthcare trends and ancillary services.
AHC’s Spring Conference is a day-long seminar embracing innovation in Ancillary Care design and operation. Ancillary care is one of the fastest growing sectors of healthcare due to rising costs and changing demands by consumers. The separation between healthcare and community development is continuing to blur for both urban and suburban settings.

Congratulations to Jaclyn Hensy Assoc. AIA and Tristan Walker Assoc. AIA, the 2019 recipients of AIA Seattle's Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship, for their proposal, "Proactive Practice".
What happens when architects are the ones who initiate work instead of the typical invitation model where the client defines ambitions of the work? As this year’s recipients of AIA Seattle’s Emerging Professional Travel Scholarship, Jaclyn and Tristan will investigate architects who saw unmet needs, opportunities, or room for exploration, and decided to take action. Their proposal, “Proactive Practice,” seeks to understand the different processes architects can utilize to realize potentialities in a project, beyond that client invitation.
Visit us @ the Center to see the exhbit of AIA Seattle’s 2018 Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship recipient, Laura Bartunek Assoc. AIA

The exhibit catalogs these tales of rain through a series of climate illustrations and architectural research models, asking and inspiring us to think differently about our weather. Join Laura for her tour of the exhibit March 28.
