In Every day, Seattle-based architect Kirsten R. Murray presents eleven works drawn from her nearly three decades in practice. These projects focus on an aspect of the “everyday” – the places and environments we experience in daily life. These smaller-scale, nuanced projects have formed a through-line in Murray’s design practice; her close attention to the patterns and habits of the people who inhabit these spaces has come to inform Murray’s larger mixed-use and master planning work. No matter the scale or location, Murray’s work demonstrates the possibility of transformation and elevation through the everyday – the tactile, unfolding experiences of the human body in space that we often take for granted.
