Freiheit & Ho Architects will be participating in the 2017 Seattle Design Festival Block Party on September 9th and 10th in Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. It is the kickoff event to the two-week Seattle Design Festival.

The Seattle Design Festival Block Party is a two-day street fair which includes various interactive workshops, installations, activities, exhibits, and tours. It is an opportunity for the design community and the public to come together and interact through large-scale design installations, performances, and design activities. This year’s Festival theme, POWER, asks: “how can community play an important role in the POWER of design? Who has the power? Who must empower? How do the powerful and powerless work together? What power does design have to drive positive change?”. The team at Freiheit & Ho Architects was inspired by this message and designed an interactive exhibit titled, “Build That Bridge”.

The interactive exhibit is a fastener-less bridge that relies on each piece to complete the overall structure. Through our structure, we want to convey the POWER of togetherness and the empowerment that results. The power to build the bridge comes from teamwork, communication, and fun! The bridge itself is powerless when the pieces aren’t assembled; but when they are together it creates a powerful structure.

Freiheit & Ho Architects is encouraging everyone to come by our interactive exhibit and construct the bridge through team work because the bridge cannot be built by one person.
