Partner Sian Roberts will be on a panel to discuss “Design Snapshots: Award-winning Open Space Projects” at the American Institute of Architects Conference on Architecture 2019. Sian will speak about Pike Place MarketFront, which received a 2019 AIA National Institute Honor Award for Regional & Urban Design.

Session details:
How do visionary architects address the challenges poses to reinvent a rewarding public realm? Hear candid insights from the architects behind these award-winning projects:

  • Confluence Park, San Antonio, Texas (Lake | Flato Architects + Matsys) offers a living laboratory designed to broaden its visitors’ understanding of South Texas ecotypes and the impact of urban development on local watersheds. A destination for learning and recreation, the park is a piece of the country’s largest environmental restoration project and an accessible gateway to outdoor activity.
  • The Infra-space Initiative, Massachusetts (Landing Studio), addresses the state’s most overlooked spaces: the landscapes beneath elevated highway viaducts. Transforming these inaccessible and foreboding spaces through clever programming, placemaking, and lighting, the initiative is helping to ameliorate the negative impacts of highways on cities.
  • Pike Place MarketFront, Seattle, Washington (Miller Hull Partnership), reclaims a former municipal building site, in what is the first addition to Seattle’s cherished farmer’s market in nearly 40 years. The final piece in a long-anticipated vision for a 9-acre neighborhood turned historic district, the project delivers nearly 40,000 square feet of public space and creates a new gateway from the city’s downtown area to its waterfront.

Engage with these remarkable architects in a Q&A following their presentations.

Other speakers include Tenna Florian, AIA, Associate Partner at Lake|Flato Architects; Marie Law Adams, AIA, Founding Partner of Landing Studio; and Fuller Hannan, Assoc. AIA, Director of Communications and Project Manager at Pfeffer Torode Architecture.
