ARCADE is a Seattle-based nonprofit that creates opportunities — in print, in the community and online — for sharing ideas about design, culture and the built environment. We publish a magazine, host events and provide a curated calendar of Northwest design and art happenings. Aiming to strengthen connections between various creative groups and design disciplines, we invite all to participate and collectively add to the greater whole.
Founded in 1981 by a group of recent architecture-school graduates, ARCADE now includes a staff of three, a dedicated board of trustees, a cadre of generous and enthusiastic committee members and volunteers, and many talented creative contributors.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ARCADE’s mission is to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life.
ARCADE fulfills its mission through its award-winning magazine; events, educational lectures, panel discussions, salons; and web presence, which includes its website, e-newsletter, online calendar of Northwest design events and growing social media community.
In our magazine, we bring together voices from multiple design disciplines – architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, industrial design, graphic design, etc. – and the arts community. Dedicated to providing a Northwest perspective, we present insight on and review notable regional topics. We also work with contributors from around the world, always examining how what we do in the Northwest fits into the larger picture. Our content is available online and in print.
