Show & Tell with Alissa Walker + Student Good City Presentations!

Posted on Mar 12th, 2012 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Alissa Walker is our last Show & Tell of the quarter!

Please join us for our LAST Show & Tell of the quarter! Let’s welcome Alissa Walker!

Who is Alissa? In her own words from her website:

You can find my writing at GOODFast CompanyDwellSunsetPrintThe Architect’sNewspaperLAWeeklyMetropolisWiredDesignObserverCore77,
CoudalReadyMadeEyeHOW, and even at two magazines that don’t exist anymore, I.D. and STEP Inside Design. I’m a contributing writer for Fast Company’s new design site, Co.Design, and a contributing editor at GOOD, where I write the column Design Is a Verb. I’ve also written for the Los Angeles Times, but it wasn’t about design, it was about Star Wars. From time to time, I’ve been tapped to pinch-hit for the restaurant and nightlife blog Eater LA. And in 2008 I spent two incredible months pounding the pavement in New York while researching and writing the first of a new series of walking guides, City Walks Architecture: New York, which was published by the fine people at Chronicle Books in 2009.

This Show & Tell will be happening at ADX on March 14th starting at 6:30pm. This event is also happening along with GOOD Ideas for Portland Student Presentations by Nicole Lavelle’s Design Thinking class.

In 2010, she was named as one of seven USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Fellows for her writing on design and urbanism.
