One of the most common things we do as a community is eat, which explains why restaurants are so important to our everyday lives. Plus, restaurants are neighborhood fixtures that do great things for street life. But how do restaurateurs choose neighborhoods? How do architects think about context in the design? In this installment of The Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 2012-13 lecture series, Developing Community Through Design, Jim Graham of Graham Baba Architects (Revel, Quoin, La Spiga, Brave Horse Tavern), Matt Kellogg (Point 32), and chefs Meeru Dhalwala (Vij’s and Seattle’s new Shanik) and Josh Henderson (Skillet Diner) offer insider insight about creating spaces that engage us on so many levels and bring us together as a community. Presented by the Seattle Architecture Foundation.
