Diamonds & Gold: The Art Deco Skyscraper Northwest Style
Sat, Jan 13, 2024 from 10am - 12pm
Take a trip back in time to the Roaring 20s. Following the horrors of World War I, architects began fusing modern structural advances with beautiful, lively, organic designs to create the style known as Art Deco. On this tour, we’ll go back in time to visit lush lobbies and ornate commercial buildings to learn how technology, archeology and French design influences some of Seattle’s most impressive buildings. You’ll discover diamonds and gold. And you’ll see how Northwest imagery was incorporated into the Deco elegance and innovation of these architectural gems. Featured stops Exchange Building, the Seattle Tower and Washington Athletic Club.
This tour will leave from inside the Fairmont Olympic Hotel Lobby, 411 University St, Seattle, WA 98101.
