Urban Archives Database

The Urban Archives project contributes to the body of knowledge on urban communication. University of Washington students documented Seattle's streets and conducted original research using a variety of approaches and perspectives. Using photography, students carried out field research by capturing urban texts such as graffiti, public art, advertising, signage, and architectural design.

Original photographs of urban texts were archived, annotated and shared with the community for further research and analysis. For more information about this project visit the website.
