“Architecture and design encompass the world of ideas, a place where we may think large, and hopefully, effect positive and powerful change in our daily lives.”
Kelly Rodriguez, ARCADE Executive Director, Editor
ARCADE is a Seattle-based nonprofit that creates opportunities — in print, in the community and online — for sharing ideas about design, culture and the built environment. We publish a magazine, host events and provide a curated calendar of Northwest design and art happenings. Aiming to strengthen connections between various creative groups and design disciplines, we invite all to participate and collectively add to the greater whole.
Founded in 1981 by a group of recent architecture-school graduates, ARCADE now includes a staff of three, a dedicated board of trustees, a cadre of generous and enthusiastic committee members and volunteers, and many talented creative contributors.
A labor of love, 70% of ARCADE’s budget is supported by donations made by our community of design enthusiasts.
In our magazine, we bring together voices from multiple design disciplines – architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, industrial design, graphic design, etc. – and the arts community. Dedicated to providing a Northwest perspective, we present insight on and review notable regional topics. We also work with contributors from around the world, always examining how what we do in the Northwest fits into the larger picture. Our content is available online and in print.
Our current fall issue is ARCADE 34.2, which includes the feature "Architectures of Migration." Subscribe online here to receive the issue in print.
ARCADE also hosts and partners on design-related events in the Seattle area. From lectures to salons to our highly-anticipated magazine launch events, ARCADE strives to bring our community together to connect face-to-face through engaging, inspiring programming around design.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ARCADE’s mission is to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life.
ARCADE fulfills its mission through its award-winning magazine; events, educational lectures, panel discussions, salons; and web presence, which includes its website, e-newsletter, online calendar of Northwest design events and growing social media community.
Kelly Rodriguez, Executive Director, Editor
Kelly is the longtime editor of ARCADE. In June 2011 she assumed the new role of executive director in addition to her editorial responsibilities. Kelly holds a bachelors and masters in architecture, which she pursued because she feels strongly that architecture and design encompass the world as we know it.
Erin Kendig, Managing Editor
Erin believes that thoughtful, compassionate and bold conversations can positively impact our world, and she finds ARCADE to be an extremely valuable platform for community dialogue. Erin has a background in graphic design and literature studies, and in addition to her work at ARCADE, she is also a fine artist.
