- A beautifully presented narrative detailing the enthralling process of renovating the Space Needle, the first tower in the world to boast a revolving restaurant, and a structure that changed notions of engineering and construction
- The process of renovation from planning, construction to the final result are richly photographed in full colour throughout, with numerous captions
- Incisive commentary from the many stakeholders involved with the Space Needle provides intriguing insight into the process of renovating such a beloved symbol
The initial project wasn’t supposed to be about architecture but rather a revamped, interactive website for the Space Needle, designed to counteract declining visitor appreciation. The Century Project at the Space Needle by Olson Kundig, however, reestablishes the beloved tower as a forward-looking symbol of Seattle. The renovated tower is a marvel of architecture and engineering, and pushes the boundaries of what is possible. The revamped structure gives a new perspective on the changing urban landscape while preserving views of the familiar mountains and waterways that surround Seattle. This compelling narrative takes you behind the scenes of how the work was achieved.
