What is FutureShack?
While many think of architecture as grand, historic buildings or the latest artistic showpiece, it is more often found in the dwellings that we see every day. What is the future of home design? How will it affect you and how can you get involved? FutureShack helps us discover, through examples around our city, what makes good design work. A panel of design professionals and public advocates will lead a discussion focusing the key issues facing our communities when it comes to design. Please join us!

Check out the 2010 FutureShack Gallery http://futureshack.aiaseattle.org/ to view locally-designed homes from around the region

This past Spring, AIA Seattle sent out a "Call for Projects" for the 2010 FutureShack program, looking for innovation in both single-family and multi-family homes and how residential those homes fit into the broader community. The projects could be already built or conceptual (built or designed in 2005) with a project team that included at least one Washington-licensed architect. The 2010 FutureShack Gallery http://futureshack.aiaseattle.org/ showcases the work of those who submitted. Enjoy!

Your Home Project: Where to Begin?

Sometimes it may feel like it takes a village to make a home project successful. How do you figure our how to make the most of my budget? What does "green design" really mean and can I even afford it? How do I to plan for my family's changing needs? What questions should I be asking? FutureShack will have tips and information on-hand to help you answer these questions and more.

FutureShack Jury
This summer, a panel of design professionals and public advocates evaluated the projects submitted to FutureShack and selected those they felt reflected the goals of the FutureShack program. The jurors, Jonathan Segal FAIA of Jonathan Segal Architect in San Diego; Jim Russell of ideabox in Salem, OR; Betsy Hunter of Seattle's own Capitol Hill Housing; and Jim Diers, community-builder and author of "Neighbor Power," will discuss their choices live at the September 15 event.
