Seattle Architecture: A Walking Guide to Downtown -- the long-awaited guidebook has been described as a model of accuracy and comprehensive coverage of downtown Seattle buildings and spaces. More than 400 images are featured in the full-color book. Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) worked with author Marueen Elenga and volunteers for more than two years to develop the book, the organization’s first publication. It is the only Seattle guidebook that focuses entirely on downtown Seattle from I-5 to Elliott Bay, Seattle Center, and the southern boundaries of the International District and where it all began, Pioneer Square.
From a UW Art student’s Art History dissertation project, this book is fully funded by generous donations from Seattle families and companies. Architecture firms released their own images to compile a visually compelling look at Seattle’s urban landscape. The Space Needle isn’t the only cool piece of architecture we have! In fact, we pass innovative architecture each day.
