Seattle Firms Recognized for their Forward-thinking Approach to Urban Living

During the last weekend of September, eleven projects from Seattle architects were recognized for designs that answered the question: What is the future of urban living and where does architecture fit in?

The architecture firms were recognized during FutureShack; which was held in conjunction with residential architect magazine's Reinvention Symposium, in Seattle. The program boasted 300+ attendees and Steve Scher, of KUOW’s Weekday, as the moderator.

FutureShack is a new residential architecture program that celebrates progressive solutions for urban living across a wide range of building types, budgets, constraints, and social agendas.

Submittals were from around the region and were judged by two separate juries - one comprised of outspoken members of the public and another comprised of design professionals.

An online gallery of all 73 projects submitted by local firms can be found here: http://futureshack.aiaseattle.org/.

The juries of design professionals and non-design professionals picked the eleven winners from these 73 projects because their approach soared beyond typical residential design.

The eleven recognized firms are:

  • ruffcorn mott hinthorne stine
  • The Miller/Hull Partnership
  • GGLO
  • Prentiss Architects
  • b9 Architects
  • Workshop Architecture Design
  • Bohlin Cywinski Jackson
  • SMR Architects
  • Adams Mohler Ghillino Architects
  • Johnston Architects
  • Ross Chapin Architects
