“The project will create a vibrant learning and event space. It will connect UW and its students to the waterfront, and also to a landmark event in UW’s history. The impact will be multiplied many times over by the release of the movie, which builds upon the truly remarkable response to the book.

This is a story that strongly resonates with everyone – David vs. Goliath. These were Washington boys who conquered the world. It’s a story that needs to be told, and it’s a story that needs to be commemorated on the UW campus. That’s why the Shell House project matters so much.”

― Ed Lazowska, Professor, and Bill & Melinda Gates Chair Emeritus, Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering


We want to acknowledge the lands and waters where the ASUW Shell House rests, stəx̌ʷugʷił (stukh-ug-weelth) ‘Carry a Canoe’ in southern Lushootseed – land of the Duwamish, ‘the people of the inside’, and all the Coast Salish people. It is the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations.
