As is usually the case, the fall months winding down to year’s end always seem to rush by. We’ve been juggling a new wave of projects, but staying balanced with some serious design inspiration both online and out in the world. Here’s our roundup of the past half-year, let us know if we’ve missed any must-sees and must-dos in the comments below.

Container ships are no stranger in the waterways around Seattle. But the latest, largest to hit the international seas is something to behold. Introducing the Triple-E Mary Maersk.

While we’re on the topic of ships and superlatives, the city-sized FLNG Prelude is “the largest floating facility ever built.” The photo alone is dizzying.

A welcome add to the built environment here in Seattle: 12th Avenue Arts building on Capitol Hill’s growing (you guessed it) 12th Avenue. It’s gotten plenty of press coverage already, along with a grand opening party last month. More public events and tours to come, we hear.
