Seattle’s recent transformations have meant big changes throughout the city.
In Autumn Quarter of 2015, The HALA Studio explored how to productively engage with Seattle’s single family zoning and neighborhood development in the Wallingford neighborhood. Led by University of Washington instructor, Rick Mohler, students explored “an expansion of housing types, ownership models, and community engagement.”
The Studio examined ways to think about preserving the city’s “values of social equity and environmental stewardship” during a period of intense growth.

The studio adopted its name from Mayor Ed Murray’s 2014 formation of the Advisory Committee for the Seattle Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA).
