29/08/2012 by architectural competitions

Would you like to create something that will be shown (and used!) at the Seattle Design Festival? Check out the Seattle Design Jam: a Street Furniture Design Competition. Street furniture created for the Design Jam will be part of the “Design Block,” the hub of this year’s Seattle Design Festival. If parklets and spontaneous urbanism spark ideas for you, then gather a team or enter yourself. Designers and students in the greater Puget Sound area are invited to participate.
