Our Annual Model Exhibit celebrates the creativity of local and international designers and firms.

CommUNITY, SAF’s 26th Annual Architectural Model Exhibit invites us to reflect on architecture as a catalyst for interaction, connections, and community and as the carving of space where diverse communities converge and thrive. Created by an SAF Exhibit Committee of community members, CommUNITY seeks submissions that explore shared and differing community narratives and identities that honor the diversity of Seattle’s population through a design-focused lens. We aim to shift focus away from hyper-individuality and uphold collective and collaborative narratives of the built environment. Join us as we explore the transformative power of architectural design in fostering CommUNITY.

Each year, the exhibit displays physical and digital models, architectural renderings, and a variety of other displays that represent the design process. Through this exhibit, architectural projects and the tools used to develop them take center stage and connect audiences to the process of architectural design and the role of architecture in our everyday lives. Physical models are highly encouraged, including 2D prints, but SAF will also present the exhibit as an online exhibition and can host both static graphic and video content.
