A huge thanks to Lee Copeland FAIA, Boaz Ashkenazy of Studio 216 and Thaisa Way, Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture, UW for participating in our first Salon of the Millennium Talks series.
Boaz gave some astute insight into Seattle’s current urban design proposals with a specific emphasis on his current project of creating a mini-documentary on the history and evolution of the Pike Place Market.
Lee gave an overview of his prolific career that straddles the divide of urbanist and architect. He showcased his multiple seminal plans for the city including Belltown, the edge of Lake Union, and the University of Washington. He also shared a few intimate single family residential projects and smaller civic projects. His career serves as a model for a new generation of architects interested in more than just buildings.
Please see my covert iPhone photos from the Salon in the slideshow below. We will be updating this post with more details soon. Thanks!
Graham Day, Associate AIA
