The Seattle Architecture Foundation and Board & Vellum invite youth ages 10-16 to take the lead in reinvigorating the streetscape by designing and modeling their own parklet.
During this two-hour workshop participants will learn about parklets and their potential to change and challenge traditional city landscapes, gain hands-on experience creating three-dimensional models, and work alongside local architects and landscape architects from the Board & Vellum office. Each participant will have the opportunity to design a parklet that will improve, or “level up”, the pedestrian experience.
NOTE: Board & Vellum is a fabulously gay-owned company recently named one of the largest LGBTQ owned businesses in Seattle, and one of the best places to work in the region. Founder Jeffrey Pelletier actually hosted an OUT for Sustainability salon years ago. Check them out.
