December 7, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, Tickets

Mark the end of the 25th Annual Model Exhibit, JUNCTION, with a closing reception featuring a special presentation from 7 Directions’ Daniel Glenn, highlighting culturally significant sites designed through inclusive engagement with tribal nations. Food and beverage provided.

Junctions are most commonly a place to come together, marking a convergent place where two becomes one. When each party comes together to contribute to a greater whole, these unions can generate synergy. JUNCTION illuminates and invites us to reflect on the dual craving for spaces that celebrate individual pathways as well as those that promote collaboration. What connections will our society choose to forge that honor identity while promoting cohesion?

The Seattle Architecture Foundation’s Annual Model Exhibit celebrates the creativity of local and international design firms. 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.
