TOUR - Greatest Hits Tour: Chart Toppers and Heart-stoppers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This tour leaves from SAF's offices at 1333 Fifth Ave., 3rd Floor (in Rainier Square)
It’s a new riff on the city as we focus on the construction, context, and culture which shaped our skyline, from golden oldies like Kirtland Cutter’s Rainier Club to popular favorites like the Rem Koolhaas’ asymmetric, cantilevered Central Library. You’ll develop an appreciation for the social forces which shaped Seattle and our built environment. Featured stops include the Fifth & Madison Condominium/901 Fifth Avenue Plaza and Seattle City Hall.

This tour is accessible for all abilities and accomodations can easily be made if needed, as their are some stairs.  This cost of the tour is normally $15, but to make it accessible to all, a special FREE Design Festival Pass is available for this date.  Limited free tickets available, so please register in advance.
