Posts to look out for this week on Arch[BE]Log:

Monday (today!) : Chris Meek, Research Assistant Professor, talks about his upcoming book Daylighting Design in the Pacific Northwest
Wednesday :  Highlights from Jim Nicholl’s summer final Furniture Studio review.
Thursday : Upcoming events in Seattle and beyond.


I’m sure we all have favorite buildings around Seattle – but this weekend, it was the bright graffiti, murals and other street art that caught my eye in Capitol Hill, Golden Gardens and from I-5 South looking toward the Amazon building.  So, instead of documenting solely architecture, events, and articles around Seattle this week, here are a few of my favorite spots. What happens when people take over architecture with a can of paint (or chewing gum)?

1. Capitol Hill, 11th Ave between Pine and Pike (just down from Value Village).
