Maker labs open doors to STEM careers. Currently under construction at Seattle University, the new Center for Science and Innovation aims to break down academic silos in sciences and engineering, and to make STEM learning relevant to the entire student population by placing the disciplines within a welcoming, student-centered hub for social gathering and events. The staffed innovation lab is an interdisciplinary and inclusive environment that encourages curiosity and exploration among all students to activate more diverse student engagement with the sciences.

Liberty Bank Building received the @NAIOPWA Affordable Housing Development of the Year Award! We are honored to have participated in the creation of this mixed-use affordable housing landmark in Seattle’s Central District with Africatown Community Land Trust, the Black Community Impact Alliance, Capitol Hill Housing and Byrd Barr Place. Located on the site of the former Liberty Bank, the first bank west of the Mississippi River dedicated to serving the African American community, this project honors a rich history and cultural significance. Community recommendations were essential to the project design, which incorporates salvaged elements from the original bank, exterior colors and patterns inspired by Afrocentric design, and work by local artists.
