CTBUH Seattle Presents: Breathing New Life into the City

Thursday, 09 May 2024 | 505 First Ave. S Rooftop Event Space (505 FIRST AVENUE SOUTH SEATTLE, WA 98104) | Seattle

Join the CTBUH Seattle Chapter for a presentation of 3XN’s Quay Quarter project and discussion of adaptive reuse projects in the urban environment.

Should we build new buildings, or should we renew and reuse the existing ones? And how do we grow existing cities, and build new, more sustainable cities.  How do we choose between new buildings and cities, and make decisions around the adaptation of the existing for the sake of environmental, economic and social sustainability?

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat seeks to identify strategies for transformation and growth that bring new blood to urban life around the globe. There is a new generation of tall buildings and shapes of density to be discovered, which provides new opportunities for flexibility and energy savings, as well as a substantial reduction of impact on the environment. 

Join us for a presentation of an innovative approach to adapting an existing structure into a new world-class, award winning, mixed-use tower that has transformed a district, along with research and discussions around how to bring these innovative solutions to the PNW.
