If the Transit Riders’ Union relaunch isn’t your cup of tea, the Seattle Architecture Foundation will be hosting a lecture on transit-oriented development (TOD) at around the same time next Tuesday, the 15th.  The lecture is the second in a six-part series called ‘Design in Depth’ that focuses on how design impacts people and communities on both a small and large scale.  With the opening and impending expansion of Link, TOD is a good fresh topic for the lecture series.

As part of the lecture, there will be a panelist discussion featuring several big-hitters in the world of Seattle-area TOD:

Local expert panelists for this presentation are Josh Brower, Chair-Emeritus, Seattle Planning Commission; Scott Kirkpatrick, Transit Oriented Development Manager, Sound Transit; Mike Mariano, Principal, Schemata Workshop; and David Hewitt, Principal, HEWITT. They will discuss their varied roles and perspectives, from system wide station area planning to long range land use policy making to community engagement with the design process and completed transit related projects.

When: Tuesday, November 15th, 7 to 8:30pm
Where: Downstairs at Town Hall, 8th & Seneca
Cost: $20 general admission; $10 for seniors, students & SAF volunteers
