What does authentic design mean to you? What makes a space look, feel, or be authentic? Join a lively discussion about it over some drinks and snacks with us on February 16th at 6 p.m. at Board & Vellum's Below Grade event space, as we kick off the 2017 Night School "school year" with a discussion on authenticity.
Capitol Hill Art Walk is coming up, and Board & Vellum is hosting a brand new show by Etta Lilienthal. Read our Q&A and get to know the artist ahead of the February 9th opening reception for standstill, a site-specific installation in our public gallery space, “By Others.”
Ten presenters, 10 slides, 10 minutes each. Join Board & Vellum for a fast-paced, fun event to learn about some exciting new eco-friendly design projects in the Northwest when the annual Green Building Slam returns on Friday, November 4.
Board & Vellum presents local artists Caitie O’Donnell and Sid Gaines in its inaugural opening of the By Others gallery. Native to the Pacific Northwest, Caitie O’Donnell’s work investigates the merging of strong graphic forms with abstract elements. Sid Gaines is showcasing two mini-series: Figures and Combinations, exploring the simultaneous fluid feedback and concrete nature of clay.
Join Jeff Pelletier of Board & Vellum; Dani Cone of Fuel Coffee, High 5 Pie, and Cone & Steiner; I-Miun Liu of the Oasis Tea Zone; and Lindsey Engh of Impact Hub Seattle for a panel discussion on the impact of architecture on small business. B&V Night School: 6PM August 31st, Below Grade at B&V.
Board & Vellum recently hosted a screening of Torre David during Night School, followed by a lively discussion about how ownership of space (even if not official, or even sanctioned) leads to inherent care of the space, fostering community, and building supportive architectural environments.
We are hosting the next “Night School” at our new office on Wednesday, July 27th at 6 PM, at B&V's Below Grade event space! Come watch and discuss a screening of Urban Think Tank's "Torre David," a documentary on the extra-legal occupation of a partially-built Caracas skyscraper.
Board & Vellum is co-sponsoring The Moth Mainstage at Benaroya Hall with 88.5 KPLU, KUOW 94.9 FM Public Radio, and the Seattle Met, hosted by Seattle Arts & Lectures. Come join us on Wednesday, May 18th, 2016, and enjoy an evening of storytelling based around the theme "Ties that Bind," hosted by David Crabb.
Last weekend, Board & Vellum teamed up with the local branch of the WSGR law firm for Rebuilding Together Seattle's "Spring Rebuilding Day"! A long day of hard work, teamwork, matching T-shirts, a protective onesie, and, well, a cute puppy, rounded out a good time helping a local homeowner revive her house!
What role does time play in our interpretation, perception, and memory of architecture? What about the inverse: how are our memories altered – or mediated – by architectural space? Jeff Sandler recaps the discussion that thrived at another successful B&V Night School, this time exploring the complex and symbiotic relationship between architecture and time.
Jeff Sandler announces the upcoming installment of Night School, where we will discuss the relationship between architecture and time. Join us on April 6th at Ada's Technical Books at 6:00 PM. Night School is a departure from our daily work at Board & Vellum to debate, discuss, and analyze broader topics that impact what we do.
