Join us as we celebrate the release of our spring 2018 issue at The Center for Wooden Boats Wagner Education Center, currently under construction, designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig, and with its core and shell built by Schuchart. A $20 suggested donation at the door brings beverages, light fare from Kaspars Catering & Special Events, musical entertainment by Reflect / Adam Pazan, your copy of ARCADE, and a warm philanthropic rush. CWB and Olson Kundig will also be speaking about the inspiration and design of the building.

ARCADE’s mission is to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life. A nonprofit, ARCADE fulfills its mission through its magazine, events and web presence. This event is a "thank you!" to ARCADE’s issue contributors, designers and supporters and a way to bring the Northwest design community together. Held at different, unique spaces in Seattle, ARCADE launch events provide a place where those passionate about design—both professional designers and design enthusiasts—may connect within our creative community.
