“Guide to Seattle Micro Urbanism” is a class project by students in the Urban Landscapes course at the University of Washington taught by Prof. Jeff Hou. The term “micro-urbanism” is used to describe small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. The purpose for creating the Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important parts of the urban experiences but are often neglected by mainstream design discourses. As a collective body of work, the Guide also represents what the students have learned in class in understanding and interpreting the urban landscapes.
