The two finalist teams, SMR Architects/Glenn and Glenn Architects/DKA Architecture and Weinstein A|U/Jones and Jones, were selected from an initial group of five teams. According to El Centro de la Raza, this was due to their “extensive experience in multi-family design, childcare and community facilities, and prior work with diverse organizations and communities.”
All interested neighbors are invited to the open house. Lunch, translation services and childcare will be provided. If you will be eating lunch, RSVP by noon on April 27 to 206-957-4605 or firstname.lastname@example.org. El Centro de la Raza is located at 2524 16th Ave. S.

Thanks for posting Wendi! Can you do a reminder as we get closer to the day as well? We are hoping to have a big turnout. Just to clarify, what will be displayed will not be “El Centro’s concepts” since a design team has not even been hired yet. Rather, the design finalists will simply be presenting some hopefully exciting ideas for redevelopment of the site, in their quest to win the job. They were given guidance based on the community meeting last year, as well as El Centro’s program and open space desires. This will be the start of a long community conversation here on design so we really hope people turn out.
is this the same as that DPD that got posted back in october?
These are impressive and talented architectural teams. They have created and restored some beutiful sites in this city. (the second team, especially, have excelled in creating culturally-rich community spaces) Hopefully, this will be an infusion of architectural style and bring more similar development.
