The Emerald City has fabulous architecture, food, music, style and an under utilized downtown - quite similar to downtown Los Angeles.
28,000 patrons passed through the doors of the Rem Koolhaas designed Seattle Central Library on grand opening day - May 23, 2004. Go see for yourself why one patron refered to it as 'wearing bright socks underneath a suit'.
Experience Music Project aka the 'Frank Gehry Rock Temple' was commissioned by software billionaire Paul G. Allen and is an homage to Jimi Hendrix - child of Seattle.
The Chapel Of St. Ignatius (Steven Holl), The SAM (Carl Gould), The Olympic Sculpture Park - don't miss them.
