SPD and new Center for Architecture & Design featured in Seattle Magazine

The new Center for Architecture & Design - designed by Suyama Peterson Deguchi Architects and currently under construction - is featured in Seattle magazine's new November issue (page 34).

"PIONEER SQUARE IS WELCOMING A NEW TENANT with big ideas for its new home. The Center for Architecture & Design—the result of a partnership between AIA Seattle, the Seattle Architecture Foundation, Design in Public and the AIA Washington Council—is scheduled to move into the historic National Building by the end of this year. Designed by Belltown firm Suyama Peterson Deguchi, the 4,500-square-foot industrial, storefront space will be open to the public, in addition to providing upgraded offices for the four founding partners. Gallery spaces, conference rooms as well as a resource library will all make the Center a destination for local, national and international exhibitions and programming available to anyone interested in exploring how design shapes and inspires communities. “Our goal was to create a space that would expose the public to the significance of good design through display and interaction,” Suyama principal architect Ric Peterson says. Through the Center’s rotating exhibitions and operation as a uniquely functional work place, Peterson hopes to enhance the synergistic power of Seattle’s design community."

Suyama Space’s current installation by Veit Stratmann featured in The Stranger

Suyama Space’s current installation by Veit Stratmann featured in The Stranger

We are pleased to share Jen Graves’ review of Suyama Space's ‘The Seattle Floor’ in The Stranger this week entitled, “Floored: Veit Stratmann’s Vibrant, Anxious Seattle Floor Just Wants to Move You”

“The floor is making you do things. It’s a work of art, but let’s deal with it first as a floor. The floor is divided into parallel segments. They stretch from the door area of Suyama Space to the entrance of the Belltown architecture firm Suyama Peterson Deguchi at the back of the building. Each segment of floor is a strip of colored vinyl, in every color of the rainbow plus gray. To go forward, you choose a color. Walk forward in the narrow path of your choice, and soon you arrive at the other side. What now? Turn around and come back? Yes, but if you stay on this color, you will merely go back and forth, back and forth. So it’s time to cross between rows, from color to color, to push through the corn stalks, as it were.” - Jen Graves, The Stranger

Canlis renovation featured in The Seattle Times

In today's The Seattle Times: "CANLIS FACELIFT: The Seattle fine-dining classic not only has a new chef and is looking proactively at $15, it’s also about to get bigger: The lounge will be overhauled this winter, under the direction of esteemed local architect George Suyama. Brian Canlis reports that the wall along the lounge area will be pushed out, with the bar getting enlarged enough to accommodate a much-needed second bartender. "It'll be beautiful," he says [...] Also possibly in the works: a rooftop deck, “not for guests, but for staff” - part of the Canlis initiative to be as great a place to work as it is to dine." — Article by Bethany Jean Clement, The Seattle Times food writer / Photo by Dean Rutz, The Seattle Times
