Daniel Toole, Assoc. AIA, went to Chicago, San Francisco, Melbourne, Australia (shown), and Japan to study alleyway architecture as the 2010 AIA Seattle Emerging Professionals Travel Scholarship recipient. “Alleys,” he says, “serve as places where green infrastructure and public space can ... emerge in place of detritus and waste services.” His findings will be on display in Tight Urbanism at AIA Seattle through July 1. Then the exhibit will be displayed on shipping pallets in situ throughout Seattle’s alleys. This fall, Toole, a designer at Perkins+Will in Seattle, will continue his studies of these liminal spaces throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe as winner of the 2011 Cavin Family Traveling Fellowship. • aiaseattle.org
