Designing Big in Small Spaces

With large homes quickly becoming a thing of the past, this is becoming the era of smaller, more compact residences. Whether a small house or a houseboat, these modest spaces can present a unique set of design challenges. Our panel of speakers delves into what goes into the design of small houses, the related property development considerations, and what it takes to live in one of these unconventional, yet inventive, spaces.

Panelists: Gene Morris, Architect, Lagerquist & Morris; Michelle Linden, Architect, Atelier Drome; Yasmine Kiss, Resident of Cottage Development and moderated by Paul Schlachter, Olson Kundig Architects.  Speaker Bios available at here.

The Way to a Community is Through its Stomach

One of the most common things we do as a community is eat, making restaurants so important to our everyday lives. They are fixtures in the neighborhood that do great things for street life. But how do restauranteurs choose the neighborhoods? How do architects think about the context in the design? Please join us for a presentation and discussion led  by Jim Graham of Graham Baba Architects (Revel, La Spiga, Bravehorse Tavern) about creating spaces which engage us on so many levels and bring us together as a community.

Panelists: Jim Graham, Architect Graham Baba; Josh Henderson, Chef of Skillet Diner and Meeru Dhalwala, Chef of Shanik.

James Cutler: A Career of Small Spaces and Community Architecture

Cutler Anderson Architects has evolved to understand that the ultimate objective of any architectural design is to reveal what is true about all of the circumstances of a project. From place to program, from materials to shape, all components need to be understood and designed into a harmonious whole that reveals each component’s nature. We are honored to have James Cutler, founder of Cutler Anderson Architects and recipient of the 2012 AIA Seattle Medal of Honor, join us to share insights and reflections on the work of his distinguished design career.
