Street Scrabble, Seattle

by | Sep 19, 2014 | Americas, Interactive

Here at TC we love a good game…and for us bigger is always better! Giant boardgames are in vogue across the world and Seattle’s Street Scrabble tournament is not only fun but also highlights a need for more open space and better public realm offer in the First Hill neighbourhood.

Organised by the Seattle Department of Transportation as part of the First Hill Public Realm Action Plan, the Street Scrabble tournament is a great example of participatory design, starting a conversation between policy makers and locals on how their everyday spaces can be improved to create better gathering spaces.
