Open house: April 4

April 03, 2014

Tomorrow is our annual open house for prospective students in all departments of the College of Built Environments, including the Runstad Center.  Here is a rundown of the college-wide activities planned.  Please feel free to stop by our office or email msre@uw.edu for specifics.  We hope to see you soon!

Lunch (11:45 – 1:00 pm, Gould Court)
Join a mix of prospective students from all majors for a casual lunch, hosted by the Dean’s office.

 
Open House (3:30 – 4:30 pm, Gould and Architecture Halls)
Take a tour of our buildings and see the spaces where we work and study.

 
Lecture (4:30 pm, Architecture Hall 147)
Architects from Miller|Hull will present their plans for the new Pike Place Waterfront project.  This is a great opportunity for all majors and degree candidates to learn more about a major site for built environments work in the city.  The Miller Hull Partnership was selected by the Pike Place Market Preservation and Public Development Authority (PDA) to design a new mixed-use project adjacent to the historic Pike Place Market. The project location will be a critical connection point to the new Seattle waterfront plan currently being developed by landscape architecture firm James Corner Field Operations. Join in on a presentation of this major site of built environments work and improvement in Seattle.  (Miller|Hull principal and co-founder David Miller is also the Chair of the department of Architecture here in the College of Built Environments.)

 
Happy Hour (4:30 pm, Architecture Hall 147)
Join current students for a traditional Friday afternoon Happy Hour! Ask your questions and meet your future fellow students in a convivial atmosphere at day’s end.
