Architecture and design are valuable tools for addressing some of today’s most critical public health challenges, including the obesity and chronic disease epidemic in the United States.

Experience FitNation at the Center for Architecture & Design to:

  • explore strategies that make our environment more conducive to physical activity as a part of everyday life; and
  • learn about local and national projects that exemplify design approaches and simple improvements that contribute to a healthier lifestyle for individuals and communities.

FitNation engages visitors with fun interactives and opportunities to participate in Seattle’s ongoing dialogue about the design of our city.  Take the FitNation Ping Pong Challenge to lodge your opinion on an important city design dilemma.  Explore how close things really are for walkers and bikers in our city.  And leave your ideas behind by designing a transformation of a space in your own neighborhood.

Visit the exhibit Tuesday – Friday 10am-6pm or Saturday 1-5pm. FitNation will be on display through April 9.

This exhibition is curated by AIA Seattle. FitNation was created by AIA New York in collaboration with the Center for Architecture Foundation.
