Five Principles for the Vision of the West Seattle Triangle District Passmore, Laura Stacy


This project explores a design vision for the Triangle District that preserves local employment in new mixed use typologies, while also balancing a larger watershed and sustainability framework. Five Principles for the Vision of West Seattle was conducted to explore a possible vision for the future of the Triangle District in West Seattle. Currently commercial/light industrial areas such as the Triangle District have seen the most pressure for development. As a Masters Project, the goals were two fold. My personal goals for this work were to develop my own design process with urban principles, while applying my graduate education in urban design in a graphic way. This project was also developed through site visits, community meeting, discussions with Seattle City staff, academics, and research on best sustainability practices.
