Staff Field Trip 2013

Each summer the Architecture staff takes one afternoon to venture out on a field trip to tour a building or place of architectural significance or relevance. We are often joined by the Architecture Chair, Dave Miller,  and end the excursion with a relaxing lunch, giving us time to enjoy each other’s company. Past field trips have included the Seattle Public Library, local architecture firms, and the AIA offices. On July 17, the staff met with Dave to tour the Bullitt Center. Graduate student Jonathan Konkol led us through each floor, explaining the complex systems that make the Bullitt Center a “living building”. It is a fascinating space and we’re proud that it’s a part of our department; home to the offices of the Integrated Design Lab.

After our tour, we carpooled from Capitol Hill to Pioneer Square to the newest restaurant created by famous Seattle restaurateur, Matt Dillon: Bar Sajor. This was an especially distinct location as a member of our staff, Steve Withycombe, helped build out the space and is also a business partner. Steve provided the inside scoop on art work, décor and the incredible food served at Bar Sajor. It is a favorite spot for local architects and several stopped by our table to say hello.

It was an educational and entertaining day spent together and we look forward to planning our next field trip in summer 2014!
