Denny Substation Model in Seattle Architecture Foundation Exhibition

The architectural model of Seattle City Light’s future Denny Substation.

An architectural model of Seattle City Light’s future Denny Substation will be on display at the Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 18th Annual Architectural Model Exhibit from Jan. 13 to Feb. 5.

The exhibit is hosted at The Center for Architecture and Design, 1010 Western Ave., Seattle. After the opening night celebration, admission is free.

Called “the world’s coolest electrical substation” by Fast Company, the Denny Substation will be City Light’s largest and the first built by the utility in more than 30 years. The substation was designed by the architecture firm NBBJ, which commissioned the model.

This vital and exciting project at Denny Way and Stewart Street will support the city’s rapid growth, help fuel the local economy, and enhance the neighborhood with new parks and open spaces, an off-leash area, community meeting spaces, and public art. It will also provide improved reliability and system flexibility, benefiting customers both in and beyond the project area.
