Celebrating Past and Present
Coming Soon Africatown is a community-based design project aimed at broadening the conversation around the development of Seattle's Central District. The primary installation, consisting of eight signs placed around four central areas, parody traditional real estate and developer signs. The images, created by local residents and designers, combine community input gathered during design ciphers and meetings run through Africatown Seattle. The goal of the project is to create accessible, inspiring channels of communication and strategy among all those involved in the development of Seattle's central district, including community members, designers, architects and developers.
