My campaign to fund my time at Harvard will be featured in today’s issue of the New York Times in the finance section.  It’s incredible what an adventuresome idea can lead to.  The alleys were a similar story.

Pick up a copy – this endeavor is an interesting alternative to student loans and should prove to be an interesting experiment.

Pave Campaign

Posted in Uncategorized by seattlealleys on July 11, 2013

Hello everyone, recently I was accepted into the Master’s of Urban Design program at Harvard and will be moving to Boston in August. I recently was accepted as a campaign on the crowd-funding site Pave.com, which is like Kickstarter – but for people pursuing education and other types of investment. The return rate is 7 percent of my salary over the decade following my graduation from Harvard. I have raised nearly $10,000 of my $30,000 goal and would like to present my campaign to you all via my alley network. Check out my campaign here http://pave.com/campaign/5176b342afe8f9566fde4313 Please message me if you can think of possible investors, or are personally interested. Thank you.

Stay tuned for thought on Italian urbanism coming next!

Finally after a first round of edits, the book chronicling my travels, adventures, sketches, and photos from this year-long foray into alleyways is available at blurb.com.  Please email me if you have any questions.  You can purchase it from the link above!

Thank you for supporting my work.

Thank you to everyone who came to the opening of Tight Urbanism at AIA Seattle this last Wednesday.  Thank you as well to those that sponsored, advised, and helped with this whole study.  I would like to thank the AIA Fellows’ Committee for allowing me this great adventure.  The exhibit will run until July 1st at the AIA gallery in Belltown from 10-5 weekdays.  If you would like a private tour, please let me know ahead of time and I will block out times throughout the day.

Additionally, the exhibit will move to Maynard Alley behind the Wing Luke Asian Art Museum for an alley party in early July.  I will be leading a walking tour Saturday, June 25th in conjunction with the gallery exhibit that you can buy tickets for through the Seattle Architectural Foundation here.

Thank you to Richard Tran, a friend of mine, for taking fantastic photos of the exhibit opening Wednesday.  I would also like to thank people that came through Firehouse Alley last First Thursday to see what we were up to!  There are a few more alley parties and activities that will take place in Pioneer Square alleys this summer.  Stay tuned here and on the tweet feeds to the right for when and where they will be.

I have consolidated my travel sketches, photos, and writing into a little book titled Tight Urbanism that I will be selling on here  on the next post.

Thank you again everyone for the opportunity and support with this work.
