Symposium on the Future of Libraries
A conversation with Seattle-based civic innovators, rethinking public services and spaces to help make cities and communities work effectively for citizens.
Lesley Bain, FAIA
Principal & Co-Founder, Framework
A passionate and successful advocate for urban life, Lesley has found in her native Seattle a fertile laboratory to influence new models of urban life and provide the kind of leadership that is increasingly needed from the architecture community. The palette of opportunity runs from working with communities to transformation of the small nooks of neighborhoods and alleys to working with city and state agencies on bold moves of new urban infrastructure. Her work includes award-winning mixed-use architecture that breathes life into the edges of the public realm, and brings the activities of street life into and through their site.
