Seattle Comprehensive Plan: AIA Work Group

AIA is kicking off our work on Seattle's Major Comp Plan update - join us!

Seattle’s update of its Major Comprehensive Plan (2022-24) is arguably one of the most critical points in the city’s history. Required by the state to plan for how the city will accommodate growth over the next two decades, the Comp Plan will address crucial questions around how we distribute opportunity, what our neighborhoods should look like, and what changes we need to make to create a more sustainable and resilient city.

We need interested members to help AIA creatively respond to the questions inherent in this process.

  • How can we harness architects’ skills and experience to inform questions and ideas about how Seattle will grow?
  • How can we engage the public in design thinking around housing, complete neighborhoods, access, and more?
  • And how can we use our understanding of land use code to promote equitable opportunity and prevent displacement?

We’re looking to tackle these questions and more as we engage in discussion, design experimentation, and deep thinking about Seattle’s future.

You can be part of this effort by joining our Comp Plan Work Group, which kicks off in February. Or, you can sign up to receive updates about our efforts so that you can plug in wherever you like.
