Seattle’s new Center for Architecture and Design asked us to design the exhibition that would launch them to the public: FitNation Seattle. Core content was a series of local and national case study projects demonstrating how thoughtful architecture and design can promote a healthy and active community. Building on this, we created an experience to get you fit as well as inspired. Visitors could join in a rousing game of ping pong dialogue about topics shaping Seattle’s future, use a jump rope to measure just how walkable Seattle can be, or flex their design skills by contributing their ideas and sketches of what they’d like to see in their neighborhoods. Feel the burn at FitNation Seattle!
