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.
