We conceived and designed this pop-up space for the first-ever Seattle Design Festival, held in September 2011. A series of playful, low-tech interactives invite visitors to contribute their ideas about design and Seattle, including writing an enormous, communal letter to the city. In the center of the space an eight-foot-square map prompts participants to pinpoint the city’s hidden design treasures and hot spots. Pegboard deluxe!
