Can a city be a fashionista? As with clothing, architecture has its hot trends and enduring styles. Beginning with Seattle’s rebirth after the great fire of 1889, the city’s new buildings have been up-to-the-minute examples of the latest designs of the times—from chunky, monumental Romanesque to stark, unadorned Brutalism, to environmentally conscious, sleek glass and steel towers showcasing computer-aided, high-tech design. On this tour, you will walk the design runway decade-by-decade to see what’s been new and exciting in downtown Seattle’s built environment from 1889 through today.

This tour begins outside of the Mutual Life Building and Magic Mouse Toys, 605 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98104.
