Urban Design Forum

The Urban Design Forum serves members and the community by bringing forward critical issues facing Puget Sound neighborhoods and cities, in order to inform, engage, and support advocacy by AIA Seattle members and others who share a concern for the quality of the built environment.

The Urban Design Forum hosts monthly panel discussions, case studies and presentations. Previous topics have included such topics as bicycle and pedestrian master planning, transit-oriented development, neighborhood planning and more.

The Urban Design Forum typically hosts events on the 4th Wednesday of the month, though sometimes speaker’s schedules require off-day events.  Please check our calendar on the top-right of this page. To receive upcoming meeting and event details, subscribe to our email list on this page.
