"Seattleites care passionately about design, purpose and function when it comes to the design and livability of our city. We need an education foundation that supports people who want to jump in and participate in the design decisions affecting us today and in the future."
"Any 21st-century city that wants to thrive needs to embrace design and incorporate it into its growth. As high-quality design becomes more and more important to Seattle, it should be part of the city’s 'brand'.”
"Design isn’t just a tool or a process but a means for advocacy, a way to champion our environments...
Design in Public is a catalyst to set us on this path."
