Completing Nature’s Outline: Design and Urbanism in a Reluctant City

Presented by Presented by Betsy Anderson

Monday, June 1, 2015

Norcliffe Foundation Conference Room

Betsy Anderson


Gas Works Park


Please join us for an insightful lecture on the history of landscape design in Seattle with Betsy Anderson, a Seattle-based designer and planner with the National Park Service. Betsy will provide an overview of the history of urban design in Seattle, including projects in architecture, landscape architecture, and infrastructure. The entrepreneurs, engineers, planners, and designers who shaped this city responded to its setting in ways that continue to define its relationship to design and urbanism. Late 19th- and early 20th-century development of Seattle’s built environment—including Skid Row, the regrades, and the Olmsted boulevards—will be juxtaposed with mid-20th-century efforts to establish a regional design idiom and culture of collective public space. Twenty-first-century urban ecological design initiatives, such as green stormwater infrastructure, will be evaluated within the aesthetic context of a city long focused on the expression of utilitarian systems. Featured projects will include Gas Works Park, the Ballard Public Library, the Olympic Sculpture Park, and the work of the Northwest modernists, Jones & Jones, SvR Design Company, and Buster Simpson.

Betsy Anderson is a landscape designer, historian, and writer who seeks to integrate these disciplines in her work. A native Washingtonian, Betsy has worked in Seattle since 2008, first as a residential landscape designer and most recently for the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service. In 2014 she received an MLA from the University of Washington, with a thesis focused on Dumbarton Oaks Park, in Washington, DC.

Our afternoon will begin with a guided tour and open exploration of MOHAI and will conclude with Betsy’s presentation.

3:30 pm: 20 minute introductory Atrium Tour (first floor only)
3:50 - 4:50 pm: Independent touring of upper galleries

We are starting a mentoring program for Emerging Professional (those with five or less years in the field). Contact Heather Bratton for more information about joining as either a Spouting or Flourishing Professional.
