Catherine Lim and Jennifer Cheng
In early 2015, while design students at the University of Washington, we and our classmate Tyler Monteferrante watched a Democracy Now interview of Maru Mora Villalpando, a local activist who has been fighting for immigrant communities for two decades, despite her own undocumented status. From physically blocking busses leaving the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma to organizing for farmworker labor rights, she has helped build a community-based resistance involving several organizations, including Latino Advocacy and NWDC Resistance. Moved by Villalpando’s work, the three of us emailed her and soon began our collaboration to create Archivo, a toolkit to help undocumented immigrants collect and organize important personal documents.
The initial version of Archivo was a guide for applicants of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program for undocumented youth who came to the US as children. DACA provides two years of protection from deportation and permission to work legally. These protections aim to keep families of mixed immigration status together and improve access to fair and safe work opportunities.
DACA applicants must prove their continued presence in the US over at least nine years through photocopies of documents, such as education and medical records, pay stubs, receipts, tax returns, and bills. To provide guidance for collecting what can amount to hundreds of documents, Archivo comes with 1. a case for documents 2. a booklet explaining deferred action and how to collect relevant documents 3. a worksheet to keep an inventory of documents collected, and 4. file folders to separate documents by year. With grant funding, we produced 2,000 kits in July 2016 and have been distributing them through community workshops in Washington, Oregon, California, Tennessee, and Illinois.
Through our work on Archivo, we have joined a resilient local movement for migrant and racial justice, learning to approach design differently than we do in our day jobs as interaction designers. In contrast to design school training that values perfectionism, we prioritized alignment with distributed organizing strategies and a responsiveness to constantly changing policies and law enforcement practices.
Multiple changes to immigration programs have affected Archivo’s budget, timeline, and final design in ways that would have been difficult to plan for upfront while simultaneously moving the project forward. For instance, we initially included information about DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents), but the program was never implemented after Obama’s 2014 executive action on immigration was blocked. As Archivo’s design evolved, we learned that laboring over details wasn’t an efficient or cost-effective approach, as we needed to be prepared to make updates with each court decision and the elections.
We realized that for future design decisions, we would prioritize information generalizable to undocumented people despite changes to policy or policing, and in contrast to the conventions of project-based design work, we should approach Archivo as an ongoing engagement. The future of DACA is uncertain under the Trump administration, so we’ve added material describing how to use Archivo to gather evidence of one’s continued residence, education, and employment in the US. These are useful for other legal and emergency situations. For example, the Department of Homeland Security memos released in February authorized the expedited deportation of undocumented immigrants who cannot prove their continued presence in the US for the previous two years.
As part of a grassroots effort, Archivo’s utility hinges on what is not visible: the organizing strategies of our collaborators. Despite an increase of fear since the presidential election and the recent spate of raids at homes and workplaces, this fight is not new for undocumented people in our communities. While we continue to distribute Archivo kits, it is under a new strategy to equip undocumented people with tools to organize their own meetings. It is through these truly grassroots gatherings that community members can distribute knowledge about individual constitutional rights and share resources to help families make financial and legal preparations in the event that a family member is detained.
Through workshops organized by Villalpando and other immigration activists, we have visited schools, churches, and community centers throughout Washington state to distribute hundreds of Archivo kits directly to community members. We have met students, farmworkers, lawyers, and organizers. People bring vibrancy to the meetings through humor, homemade pozole, dance instruction, and even Guatemalan history lessons. These experiences have shifted how we see our own roles, from designers offering a service to participants of a collective effort in which each person brings a unique skill or resource. From this perspective, we see a growing movement of resistance as our work continues.
Recently, climate change, pollution, and other environmental concerns have been increasingly thought of as social justice issues. In the US, environmental injustices disproportionately affect communities of color and low-income groups. And on a larger scale, environmental injustices in the future will be much more damaging to the Global South (poor and developing countries).
A few examples of environmental injustices beyond the US: the devastation of the Ogoni people due to oil drilling in Nigeria, the rapid deforestation of the Amazon in Brazil, and the increasing threat of climate change to the Inuit and other Indigenous populations.
Sweatshops are also a danger to both people and the environment, and countries that allow sweatshops also tend to have lax environmental laws. For example, in Bangladesh the leather industry is worth a billion dollars a year, but the tanneries release untreated liquid waste into rivers and groundwater. Because of this, the Buriganga River—which thousands of people depend on for transportation, irrigation of crops, and bathing—is now polluted. Sweatshops like this also discourage the formation of unions, and workers labor long hours for low pay. As a result, they have little opportunity to fight for environmental conservation. If the leather workers in Bangladesh had the opportunity to rally for their best interests, they would likely want to minimize their expo-sure to toxic chemicals and consequently reduce pollution levels in the rivers.
Some leaders of countries in the Global South defend pollution for the purpose of “catching up” with the Global North, but they are challenged by environmental movements that are paving the way for a worldwide alliance against climate change. And with the recent placement of an active climate change denier in the Oval Office, countries in the North and South are now stepping up in the fight.
To understand why the fight against climate change is so urgent, we have to look at the young and poor people in the Global South and the Global North.

Jeffrey Karl Ochsner
A reflection on aging and loss, Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 73” speaks of “bare ruined choirs,” an evocative reference to the decaying remains of Catholic monasteries dissolved during the reign of Henry VIII. This image comes to mind as I reflect on the history and future of St. Edward’s Seminary in Kenmore—long empty but recently granted new life. The building has sat dormant for four decades, but in January 2017, the Washington State Parks department announced its approval to convert the structure to a park lodge and conference center.
This is cause for celebration, as the best way to protect any building is to keep it alive. However, the good news of St. Edward’s renewed future may produce a momentary tinge of sadness as well, as we recall what this place once meant to those who built and inhabited it.
St. Edward’s was literally built upon faith. When Bishop Edward John O’Dea announced the proposed seminary in a letter to his clergy in May 1930, he admitted he had no funds to build. Although the onset of the Great Depression had already curtailed the plans of many institutions, O’Dea proposed a fund-raising campaign in the fall both to support Pacific Northwest Catholic parishes and underwrite the new seminary. The next month he announced the project to the public, calling it a lifelong dream. The site was over 300 acres of land at the north end of Lake Washington. Father John Fenlon of the Sulpicians (the association of Catholic priests who would staff the new seminary) visited Seattle in August to review the design; the Seattle Times reported his praise for the project: “New blessings, distinction, and achievement for the church in the Pacific Northwest will spring from St. Edward’s Seminary here.” In the cornerstone ceremony on October 13, participants, including the papal legate, used the same silver trowel that had been saved from setting the cornerstone of St. James Cathedral in 1903. A year later, in October 1931, 165 Catholic priests participated in the dedication. By then the seminary had already opened with 52 high school students. Collegiate level instruction began within a few years. In 1939, the first 12 St. Edward’s graduates were ordained as priests.
St. Edward’s was designed by the office of leading Seattle architect John Graham. Roughly 350 feet long, with a six-story tower, the building contained more than 200 rooms including a chapel, dining hall, kitchen, classrooms, laboratories, recreation room, priests’ living quarters, 130 rooms for students, and separate living spaces for the sisters who managed the kitchen and bakery. Topped by a red tile roof and constructed of cast-in-place concrete faced with brick and cast-stone details, the building reflects an era of architectural eclecticism when designers drew on the best of the past to address problems in the present. The style is Late Romanesque Revival, sometimes called Lombardy Romanesque, and is based on the architecture of northern Italy and southern France during the 11th and 12th centuries—considered appropriate as it showed the continuity of Roman Catholicism by associating the new seminary with the medieval church.
For the next 30 years, St. Edward’s educated the priests who staffed the growing Catholic parishes across the Pacific Northwest. The level of activity at the seminary was reflected in its subsequent additions: a gymnasium (designed by architect John Maloney) in 1951, new locker rooms in 1961, and a swimming pool in 1968. Even as the additions were made, growth was already outstripping the capacity of St. Edward’s. In 1958 it became a minor seminary serving only high schoolers when the diocese opened the Seminary of St. Thomas the Apostle (also designed by John Maloney), a major seminary for college-aged students, just a quarter of a mile away.
The growth of the 1950s could not be sustained. Following the turmoil of the 1960s, with changes in society and in the church, religious vocations began a precipitous decline. St. Edward’s closed in 1976; St. Thomas closed the next year. St. Edward’s was acquired by the state in 1977 and dedicated as Saint Edward State Park in 1978. St. Thomas was sold separately and is now Bastyr University.
While the grounds of St. Edward’s became a much loved state park, the building presented a conundrum. It is challenging to adapt institutional buildings for reuse, as their designs are often functionally specific, rendering them incompatible for most other purposes. Over the years advocates offered various ideas for using the building, but none reached fruition. Fortunately, St. Edward’s was solidly built; although empty for decades, it remains structurally intact. Now, Daniels Real Estate, a firm specializing in the reuse of historical structures and new construction in historic contexts, has received the unanimous approval of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission to convert the building into a park lodge and conference center. Once interior deterioration has been addressed and modifications are made for the new use, the building will live again.

Combating climate change can be overwhelming to consider. What can I do about it? It can be hard to know where to start with so many problems looming. No matter our age or profession, we all must begin fighting climate change somewhere. Whether they are making frequent changes in their immediate communities or solving problems on the global level, the following Seattleites are making a difference and have inspired me to, also.
Julia Lin, Age 15
Julia is copresident of Garfield High School’s branch of Earth Corps and will be the sustainability head of the student-led outdoors program, POST.
“I would like to see the environmental movement become more intersectional. Mainstream environmentalism often forgets about the social justice issues that are connected to climate change. My goal with Earth Corps and POST is to make the fight for climate justice more welcoming and accessible. ... It's so important that we continue to advocate for the Standing Rock Sioux and also Flint, Michigan, because everyone deserves to have clean water."
Denis Hayes, Age 72
Denis started Earth Day in 1970. He is president of the Bullitt Foundation and has been fighting climate change through the “vigorous promotion of ultra-efficiency and renewable energy since 1972.” He is currently “focusing much of [his] work promoting buildings in the US and around the world that have a zero carbon footprint.”
“Those of us who have profited since the industrial revolution from cheap fossil fuels have an obligation to help those who didn’t to make a transition to a renewably-powered prosperity. … Big global change can only be accomplished through collective action. We must demand that our elected officials pass laws appropriate to the dire nature of the challenge and that corporations invest as though they actually value tomorrow, and a century from now, and 10 more centuries beyond.”
Rachel Finley, Age 43
Rachel teaches AP environmental science and horticulture at Garfield High School.
“I fight climate change by ensuring our next generation is not only knowledgeable about climate and environmental issues, but they are able to critically analyze the evidence, ask questions about what is causing patterns and trends, and understand that the impacts of climate change reach far beyond the environment. … I think we are living through one of the most important moments in environmental protection. The public resistance and backlash to the current political administration shows that people know what is at stake and are willing to rise up and do something about it.”
Jill Mangaliman, Age 35
Jill works at Got Green helping people of color and low-income people in South Seattle find green jobs, food, energy, housing, and transportation.
“Climate change and environmental racism are symptoms of an unjust, exploitative economic system. We need to move the economy away from one that is harming people and the planet … There are many community-based examples of how to do things differently, many of which existed before from Indigenous people, our traditions, and cultures. … [It is] important to remember that it was black and brown communities who fought hard for environmental justice for decades … Even today, those on the frontlines [in the environmental protection movement] are Indigenous people, youth, women, and people of color, who know first hand the impacts of environmental harm and climate change, and are willing to defend their communities and homes. The Black Lives Matter movement, the Not1More movement, the Climate Justice movement—all of these struggles are connected, because people do not live single-issue lives.”
Pete Erickson, Age 41
Pete is a scientist at the Seattle branch of the Stockholm Environment Institute in their climate and energy program. In 2015, he attended the Paris Climate Conference.
“I would love to see more politically transformative solutions that reduce the power of entrenched interests and increase the power of those marginalized voices that will be most affected by climate disruption. … The most important thing by far is political momentum. Tell your electeds and tell your friends that you want a low-carbon economy. … And when we elevate voices of Indigenous people, such as the Standing Rock Sioux, as well as the laborers that will lead the low-carbon transition, we stand a real chance of building a coalition that can rival the power of the fossil fuel industry.”

Designing the College Campus—Past, Present, and Future: An Interview with Rebecca Barnes and Kristine Kenney, University of Washington
This past winter, BUILD sat down with Rebecca Barnes and Kristine Kenney at the University of Washington in Seattle to discuss the dynamic developments on UW’s campus, designing and planning universities now and in the future, and what Seattle can learn from Boston during this time of major growth. Read Part 2 of the interview on the BUILDblog.
Rebecca Barnes, FAIA, is the university architect and associate vice provost for campus planning at UW. Throughout her career, Barnes has worked in roles such as director of planning for the City of Seattle, director of strategic growth at Brown University, and chief planner in Boston during the “Big Dig,” a megaproject that rerouted Interstate 93 underground through the city and redirected interstate traffic through a new Boston Harbor tunnel. In ARCADE’s early years, she contributed as a writer and managing editor.
Kristine Kenney, ASLA, is the university landscape architect and director of campus design and planning at UW. Equipped with vast experience in campus planning in the private sector on the East Coast as well as in Seattle, for the past decade Kenney has been shaping the campus environment at the university.
BUILD: There’s been a boom of UW-developed housing in the University District over the last several years. What sparked this growth?
Rebecca Barnes: A decade ago, UW Housing and Food Services (HFS, a university auxiliary service) developed a master plan for a student housing village that included a grocery store, restaurants, and fitness and conference centers strategically located to increase on-campus student housing. At the time, only 17 percent of students lived in university-managed properties. With the university’s student body growing and its housing stock aging, HFS reenvisioned housing with contemporary facilities and support services.
Initially, HFS planned to renovate and expand existing housing in West and North Campus, but analysis showed they could economically achieve a better product with new construction. The resulting buildings are more tuned to the times. The buildings in West Campus were designed in phases—the first four by Mahlum, followed by a five-building complex by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios with Ankrom Moisan, and a three-building collection by Mithun, with GGN designing most of the landscape. North Campus development is underway now, with design work by Philadelphia-based architect KieranTimberlake and landscape architect OLIN, a well-knit team working with the university to reshape the northeast corner of Central Campus.
BUILD: When completed, that initial cluster of housing made a huge impact on West Campus.
Kristine Kenney: The first phase of the new housing—the four buildings designed by Mahlum with landscape design by GGN—was transformative. Primarily university-owned parking lots and single-family houses, that area previously felt very unsafe. The design team broadened the sidewalks, providing generous public space, and created a series of open areas, the most significant featuring the majestic elm tree, granting a sense of relief within the density. These changes introduced a crossroads at Brooklyn and Campus Parkway, which was a catalyst for change in the University District.
BUILD: Are these housing entities financially self-contained or do they help fund the university’s academic work?
RB: HFS is self-sufficient and manages its own internal pro forma using some construction funds loaned from the university, with approval by the Board of Regents, which is a serious commitment of resources to student housing by the school.
BUILD: How do you design for the classroom of the future, especially thinking about online education?
RB: Everything used to happen in lecture halls; now classes may take place in halls, online, or in interactive classroom settings, all within the same course. We’ve formed an advisory committee, including faculty and staff, to look at future classroom development in West Campus. It’s headed by Vikram Jandhyala, vice president for Innovation Strategy at UW and the head of CoMotion, which brings together industry and academic research to generate ideas and products for the marketplace. Faculty and support staff will be talking with people in industry—whether it’s computer science, health science, or arts and sciences—about what kind of spaces they each need.
BUILD: As planners, how do you stake out ground for the future?
RB: The common wisdom is flexibility, which applies to everything from furnishings to technology to space. This flexibility takes its cues from the warehouses on Seattle’s waterfront, which were built as simple frame-structures with large windows to maximize daylight. These buildings can be reutilized in numerous ways over a long period of time. Things change, and we have the most to gain from the simplest structures. We’re thinking of everything from classroom design to building design to campus design in this way.
Half of our growth over the next 20 years will occur in West Campus, which is already urban and well served by infrastructure. Also, the light rail will continue to be transformative. Soon it will directly serve West Campus, connecting the area to Husky Stadium, SeaTac, Northgate, and Downtown. The U-District can now truly develop as one of Seattle’s urban centers.
KK: The campus’s core is the traditional, historic environment most people imagine when they think of the university. Future development is proposed mostly outside of that, but for development within the core, we’re identifying ways to preserve and protect the campus’s history. When introducing new buildings into the core, we honor the existing buildings and experiences through scale, the relationship of structures to the surrounding landscapes, and by ensuring the landscape creates a seamless experience and environment throughout. We’re creating the history of tomorrow right now, which West Campus exemplifies. In 100 years, someone will look at these new spaces in the same way we’re looking at the historic core today.
BUILD: That raises an interesting point. Looking back at the original Olmsted Plan for the campus, is there anything in the plan’s DNA that provides a roadmap for future development?
KK: Rainier Vista was created by the Olmsted Brothers in 1909. It linked the campus to Mount Rainier 60 miles away. To reach outward and connect the university’s landscape to its regional context when most campuses were focused inward is an incredible, memorable vision.
While the university’s layout is often attributed to Olmsted, credit should really be given to Bebb and Gould, who established the framework for subsequent growth through the Regents Plan of 1915. They integrated Rainier Vista’s legacy and reinforced additional axes, including the Quad and Memorial Way, which all radiate from the space in front of Suzzallo Library, now known as Red Square, which our data has revealed is the true heart of the campus. The Bebb and Gould plan also expanded upon the concept of Rainier Vista, extending the virtual boundaries of the campus outward, while offering semi-enclosed arrangements that terminate within the university’s boundaries, creating strong connections within the campus.
We continue to reinforce these connections today. For example, the North Campus Housing development at the east end of the Quad axis will sustain a student village in the woods at the edge of Denny Field.
BUILD: Rebecca, as the former chief planner for the City of Boston, what would you say Seattle should learn from Boston’s Big Dig?
RB: There have been numerous delegations from Seattle to Boston over the years to learn from the Big Dig. Cities learn from each other, and the seeds of that are evident here. Seattle has been thinking large-scale, which matters, along with tending effectively to local impacts, the quality of design thinking and expression, and a commitment to actively programming the new public realm. The public realm needs a management plan for its maintenance, operations, and to develop a wide range of partnerships.
Looking forward, I hope Seattle will aim high on inclusive housing goals under the Mandatory Housing Affordability program. In Boston, the mayor mandated 15 percent affordable housing be included in all residential projects, and that’s what happened. Seattle should aim this high or higher in our extremely hot market.
BUILD: Any other lessons to be learned from Boston?
RB: Keep investing in regional public transit! Boston’s transit system is in terrible condition, financially and physically, and their economy depends on it to transport people to and from work and school. We’re finally stepping up to the plate in Seattle, voting for ST3 to create a world-class regional transit system here over the next couple decades. It’s a hard lesson: the upfront money is easy, but upkeep, maintenance, and reinvestment require a whole different way of thinking. Hopefully we’ll be up for that.
KK: The livability elements I see in Boston that Seattle could borrow are public access to the waterfront and a network of public walkways through the city that provide a sense of porosity with the ability to safely walk down streets and alleys as well as through parks and even atriums of major buildings. Safe and inviting back routes allow people to interact with buildings as they pass through. There are examples of these pathways in some of Seattle’s neighborhoods, but Downtown would benefit from them as well.
