The format will be a very brief orientation to a site, and then a facilitated discussion about its strengths, weaknesses, and suggestions for improvement. Sites can be good (or bad) examples, or something you are working on currently.

From the Eastside (Bellevue/Redmond):

  • Take either I-90 or Hwy 520 across Lake Washington and head North on I-5. Take EXIT # 169 to NE 45th St. & NE 50th St.
  • Stay RIGHT on the off-ramp for NE 45th St., but then quickly MOVE TO THE LEFT-HAND lanes in order to turn left on NE 45th St. at the light.
  • Turn LEFT onto NE 45th St. and cross over the freeway, heading West on NE 45th St. for about a mile (about 8 traffic lights, just after Olympia Pizza).
  • Turn LEFT onto Stone Way and head South about 10 blocks.
  • GO STRAIGHT through the light at NE 34th St. and then take the very NEXT RIGHT onto Northlake Way.
  • After a couple of blocks, the road will narrow and make a slight turn to the left as you come up to a STOP sign.
  • There are two buildings in front of you, the meeting presentation is being held in the building on the right, furthest from the water, with the brick and gold exterior.
  • GO STRAIGHT through the stop sign (past the ramp up to the right) and then take a quick RIGHT into the "701 Visitor Parking" area (small sign). Park in one of the numbered spots. If this is full there is some off-street parking available as well as commercial parking lots close by.
  • There are no real obvious and visible Adobe signs on the buildings so instead look for the big brick and metal buildings and the PS SIGCHI signage posted about to guide you to the meeting room.
  • If you get lost, you can call Adobe for directions at 206.675-7000. The address is 801 N. 34th Street Seattle, WA 98103.
