It’s time to get a few newly discovered and recently remembered items up on the blog. Last Friday evening the University of Washington held their annual Headlines Exhibit which highlights dozens of architectural projects that will soon be in construction. It’s a rare view at the design process and a great way to keep a pulse on what is coming Seattle’s way. It only runs for two weeks so get over to the UW and check it out. There are many more recommendations for Seattle at The Modern List and, as always, give us a shout if we missed anything.
2008 UW Headlines Exhibit from May 9 to May 25

To you smaller architectural practices out there – this annual exhibit needs you. When first started, the exhibit was a good spectrum of northwest firms doing local work. Gradually the exhibit is getting consumed by the big sweat-shop design firms doing high rise projects in distant places. It’s losin its soul – so cowboy up next year.

Some of you may have noticed this clean, modern piece of architecture going up between Queen Anne and Magnolia. Nice job to Chris and Laura of Studio PH on the completion.
