Alley Urbanism in the U.S., Australia, and Japan
This is a mobile exhibit by AIA Seattle’s 2010 Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship recipient Daniel Toole. Daniel travelled to Chicago, San Francisco, Melbourne, Osaka and Kyoto – cities that continue to transform their alley networks – to study the potentially vibrant in-between spaces of the built environment. The exhibit will connect Daniel’s findings to the less-travelled paths of Seattle’s own abundant alleyways.
Utilizing several mediums, including photographs and sketches, the exhibit is mounted on shipping pallets and casters to keep it mobile and modular. It has been displayed around the city at the AIA gallery, and several alleys including Firehouse Alley in Pioneer Square, and Canton Alley in the International District.
Copies of Daniel’s book, Tight Urbanism, which documents his travels through alleys in writing, photography, and sketching, will be available.
