Our lead designer, respected Seattle architect Donald King went on NPR’s All Things Considered today to discuss the Acer project, Afro-futurism, and why it’s important to him personally.

Donald is not just a part of the Acer team, he’s also a long-time resident of the Central Area. Hearing Donald speak about the way that gentrificaiton and displacement has personally affected him and his community is incredibly inspiring and re-inforces our desire for this project to be a positive force in a neighborhood that has gone through tremendous change.
