Smart Seawalls: A Travel Study on the future of the Seattle seawall

Opening Reception: April  1st, 2010…..5-7pm

                           AIA Seattle…..1911 1st Avenue

Show dates: March 22 – May 07, 2010

As Seattle redesigns its waterfront in the coming post-viaduct era, one of the most important questions facing the city is how the crumbling seawall will be rebuilt

Local architectural designer Cristina Bump was the 2009 recipient of the AIA Emerging Professional Travel Scholarship for her proposal to study innovative seawall designs in Australia and Canada

After her travels abroad, she returns to document her findings through a model, video, and print exhibition. Of special interest will be large-scale physical models of the different ‘smart’ seawalls studied and how they could be applied to Seattle’s habitat, ecosystem, and tidal patterns


This is the culmination of my seawall studies abroad!

Please join me April 1st for the opening reception! Beverages and light snacks will be provided.
