There is nothing like having the best known civic leaders don glamorous outfits made of trash (yes, trash) and strut their stuff down a catwalk at the Seattle Art Museum for getting people to think about what becomes trash and how much trash is generated. Weve organized this event twice; once in 2008 and once in 2010. (Takes a few seconds to load)
i-Sustain conceived of and organized the Jan Gehl Street Party to show how even humble streets can become incredible public spaces. For one magical evening, we turned an ugly, dirty street in an otherwise industrial area, into a lovely outdoor cafe. The speaker we brought in was Jan Gehl, the worlds foremost authority on people-friendly public places. (Takes a few seconds to load)
i-SUSTAIN conceived and organized the Commuter Tookit Photo Shoot to get the images for the Commuter Toolkit poster and associated website. The photo shoot involved shutting down a main downtown Seattle street for several hours early on a Sunday morning to set up the photo shoot with hundreds of volunteers.
Following the success of our “Visions of Urban Sustainability Poster,” which has already been distributed to over 8,000 professionals in less than a year, we have created a “Visions of Sustainable Buildings” poster to highlight the most interesting and innovative projects within our region. The poster is being distributed at national and international conferences and events, and highlights sustainable features such as natural ventilation, daylighting, energy efficiency, water reuse, greenroofs and more.
We created this poster in partnership with the International Sustainability Institute and the City of Seattle, to visualize the impact of different modes of transportation in the urban environment.
The interactive poster is hosted in the City of Seattle’s Website and can be accessed by clicking anywhere in the poster. The Institute has paper posters (24×36) and large pdf’s still available to the public.
A Full Revolution for Active Transportation in Clackamas County
Clackamas County hired i-SUSTAIN to design a campaign to present all funded mobility projects in the County as one Active Transportation Campaign. The goal was to demonstrate the holistic thinking behind the individual efforts, get federal agency support, and engage the community.
i-SUSTAIN produced an icon and slogan for the project, designed the pamphlets, and created an interactive website with fly-throughs, using Google Earth, along the designated paths.
