Seattle Architecture Foundation Tour

By November 18, 2015



They just don’t build them like they used to! Here’s your chance to see why. The Seattle Architecture Foundation is offering a two hour tour this Saturday for $15, Design Details Tour: Lions, Griffins & Walruses, Oh My!

Engineering makes a building stand up, but intricate adornments and elaborate embellishments makes one stand out. Take a walk through Seattle’s design history by taking a close look at the details that give a building its personality. Develop an appreciation for and understanding of materials from types of stone, terra cotta, bricks, and metals, and how an architect’s decisions add to the overall character of the structure. Featured stops include the Arctic Club, Cobb Building and Smith Tower.
