Redesigning Seattle Center: Now it's your turn

The Seattle Times is inviting readers to design the Seattle Center of the future.

City officials are interested in your ideas and could incorporate them into a blueprint that will guide Seattle Center redevelopment over the next 20 to 30 years.

Read Stuart Eskenazi's story on area schoolchildren taking The Seattle Times' redesign challenge, "Kids draw on imagination to redesign Seattle Center."

Seattle Center director Robert Nellams answered your questions about the Seattle Center. Read the discussion.

The map below shows the center today. Roll over each hotspot to learn more about particular landmarks and what they could become.

Design your own Seattle Center

Do you have a vision for the future of the Seattle Center?

We'll take submissions in all forms: scanned documents, photos, video, text or even a scale model.

The basics:
Only certain areas of the 74-acre campus are in play. Bulldozing the entire Center and starting over is out. The deadline is March 31. Submissions will not be returned. The links below contain more detailed instructions for each kind of submission. We'll publish a selection of the submissions. If you would like a larger map, pick up a copy of Sunday's Seattle Times.
