Upisode 39: Featuring three of the best conversations this season, this week’s episode focuses on the best of the unpublished UpZones interviews: Ian and journalist Casey Jaywork discuss “truth” in journalism in the postmodern moment; architect and MOAR co-founder Matt Hutchins updates Ian on the state of cottages, mother-in-law cottages, and other infill properties in Seattle; and public intellectual slash humorist extraordinaire Doug Abbott has a bold idea over soup.
As one of the founders of CAST architecture, Matt has spent more than twenty years working to increase the vitality of the city and the environment. Through the thoughtful design of housing, vibrant urban spaces, advocacy for more open space and better density, and inclusive community design, Matt brings idealism and experience to each project. He advocates for abundant urban housing, affordability, sustainable building and open spaces. He serves on AIA Seattle’s Housing Task Force, the Housing Design Forum, and will join the SW Design Review Board in Spring 2018. He is a recognized expert in community design and accessory dwelling units. He is a former board member of Groundswell NW and is working to bring more mass transit and new public parks to his own neighborhood, West Seattle.
