Feet First University

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be speaking at Feet First University on Tueday night at the Triad Urban Center at 3rd + Cherry. Here's their write up:

Brice Maryman is a landscape and urban designer with Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture and a lecturer at the University of Washington's Department of Landscape Architecture. Brice serves as a board member for the Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks, the Seattle Great City Initiative and The Cultural Landscape Foundation. He has published extensively, both regionally and nationally, writing about his passion for making urban infrastructure systems that are humane, ecologically-responsive, healthy and equitable. As a Lecturer at the University of Washington, he joined with professor Nancy Rottle to co-direct Open Space Seattle 2100, which is an on-going planning project to "design Seattle's green network for the next century."

Last February a charrette was held to develop a 100 year plan for Seattle's open spaces. Planners, designers, ecologists, and other professionals led over 300 residents plan healthy neighborhoods and watersheds for the next century.
When the two day charrette was over, the work did not stop. Leaders of the event have been busy informing others of the weekend's achievements. Brice will discuss where the ideas and ideals of Open Space Seattle 2100 are finding fertile ground in the civic, business and neighborhood climates of Seattle.
