Tour

ALL TOURS ARE BY RESERVATION ONLY.

The University of Washington Center for Integrated Design (CID) offers public and private tours of the Bullitt Center.

Interested in a Bullitt Center tour? Public tours of the Bullitt Center are offered through the UW Center for Integrated Design Discovery Commons. 

To sign up for a tour, please visit Brown Paper Tickets:

Tours are led by the UW Center for Integrated Design, located on the second floor of the Bullitt Center (1501 E. Madison Street). Enter on Madison Ave, the north side of the building.

The public tour typically lasts about an hour and starts at the following times:

  • Tuesdays at 4pm
  • Saturdays at 12pm

Tours will be lead by volunteer docents from the CID, a collaborative between the University of Washington Integrated Design Lab and the Bullitt Foundation.

Tours will begin in the second floor lobby adjacent to Hammer and Hand and in front of the living wall. Tours will highlight the building design strategies that help it meet the Living Building Challenge. Tours include the building’s mechanical and electrical rooms, the gray water and rainwater treatment systems, non-flush toilets and the “irresistible” stairway.

Tours are available to all ages and are accessible for those with limited mobility. Strollers are NOT permitted on tours and can be parked in the lobby. A typical tour lasts just over an hour. If you or a member of your group needs  mobility accommodation, please email Deborah Sigler at dcommons@uw.edu, prior to your tour. 

Tickets are $5. As we are an educational non-profit organization, we provide building tours for a nominal charge to help offset the expenses to provide educational tours. Please bring a copy of your Brown Paper Ticket. Your tour docent will collect tickets before the tour starts.

We are not able to offer a wait list option. Private and technical group tours are also available. If you are interested in scheduling a group tour or technical tour, or have questions about tours at the Bullitt Center, please contact Deborah Sigler, Program Coordinator for the Center for Integrated Design, at: dcommons@uw.edu.
