Roy Stark McGarrah
Roy explores design through architecture, craft, and community based participatory art and research projects. He has designed tiny homes, cabins, wilderness quest base camps, and houses. Roy has also worked within communities on public art projects, Little Free Libraries (receiving honorable mention in the AIA Seattle’s Little Free Library Design Competition with Kira Connery), Parking Day installations, and a community design process in Kent WA to include under-represented groups in their first Parking Day in 2013.
Roy believes strongly in the power of groups to transform perceptions of power and responsibility, allowing communities to act as agents in the design of their built environment and in the process empowering and connecting to one another and the environment. Roy also finds great pleasure in travel, urban homesteading, spending time with family and friends, as well as hobby carpentry, making art, and dance.
