Seattle Design Festival, the city’s annual celebration of architecture and design, is back this August with a free outdoor event.

Presented by Design in Public with the theme “Emerge,” the two-day event will be held in Lake Union Park and will focus on community, creativity, and reconnection. The always-popular Block Party will consist of interactive built design installations (participants include MG2, Johnston Architects, and Olson Kundig), as well as pop-up design activities and experiences for all ages and abilities. Festival highlights include walking design tours with Seattle Architecture Foundation, printmaking, home-built-boat races, a site-responsive performance set in Freeway Park, and more.
