The Teardown

The history of Seattle is a history of a changing region. From the gold rush pioneer days to the teardown of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. For the lives of those living in the orbit of structural change, it can be radical.

An architect envision what comes after the Viaduct

Architect David Miller has lived his entire life in proximity of Seattle’s Viaduct. As a child, he traveled its concrete decks with his family and in his adult life he has peered out over the elevated highway from his office at work and his downtown apartment. And now that the Viaduct is coming down – or being “undone” in his words – Miller is playing a role in determining what comes after.
