Join Seattle Architecture Foundation and the curator of AIA Seattle’s When Seattle Shakes, Mary Waelder, for a conversation that touches on the personal, cultural, and structural consequences of living in a seismic zone.

How does living in an earthquake zone impact you? Are you prepared for the next big one? Learn what local preservationists, architects, and engineers are doing to protect our city’s heritage and communities. Connect the past to the present, prepare for the future, preserve our heritage.
