Bothell 2017

Bothell 2017


We began to meet the community through a series of day trips, presentations and panels, researching the local physical, social and historical assets and constraints. From an initial Main Street focus, three asset areas emerged for which to address particular enhancements and generate broader strategies:

• Main Street from Bothell Way NE to 102nd Ave NE
• 101st Ave NE from City Hall to Sammamish River
• Full Block, bounded by 101st Ave NE, NE 183rd St, 102nd Ave NE and Main Street


We are beginning to produce diagrams and ‘before’ and ‘after’ images of the ideas using satellite images and street photographs. The community is invited to review and comment on these images in an open house format at Bothell City Hall, on Friday, April 28, 3:30-6:30, with the students acting as guides. The local perspectives will shape the projects, and will be a forum for sustained community interaction, enabling the studio to act as a civic catalyst, initiating community reaction and interaction. People’s Choice votes will be collected on the banner projects.
