Urban Design Forum Presents Seattle C.A.P.itol Hill Park
Urban Design Forum’s first event of 2016 will focus on The C.A.P Project, which proposes a city-wide architectural infrastructure solution to the multiple issues facing the fast growing city of Seattle. The rapid expansion of the urban core of the city has made the condition of I-5 slicing through multiple neighborhoods untenable. Recovering the space lost to the freeway is the initial generator; covering the expansive swath of land with a 45 acre, 2 mile long park creates a public benefit of an enormous scale. Focus on the public amenities, public input and evolutionary process that the C.A.P. infrastructure supports will allow the development of the concept over time.

The Urban Design Forum welcomes everyone to our events. They occur (nearly) every 4th Wednesday.
