Space Needle

Seattle’s most iconic building is the Space Needle, an observation tower built for the 1962 World’s Fair.  I was at the Seattle Center today and snapped some photos of this landmark.

Sitting near the Space Needle is the Experience Music Project (EMP).  While the Space Needle is regarded as an iconic and attractive feature on the Seattle skyline, the EMP has been called one of the Ugliest Buildings in the World.  Even though the building itself is quite the eyesore, the reflection of the Space Needle on the metallic exterior makes for a great photo opportunity.
