Through the Looking Glass Walking Tour

October 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join the Seattle Architecture Foundation for a two-hour walking tour of Seattle’s unique relationship with glass. While modern buildings are often fully wrapped entirely in glass, Seattle’s older buildings have smaller scaled windows as you recede into the history of building design. Learn how architects and developers went from using glass as an opening nestled into a stone wall to today’s modern buildings sheathed in glass. On this tour, you will discover how glass is used from the past to the present as Seattle has grown in the last few decades.

PNW bonus tip! At the end of the walking tour, guests learn how young salmon find their way to the ocean through the innovative use of glass in urban architecture.

The interior of the Amazon Spheres is not included in this tour. The Spheres are open to the public with reservations on the first and third Saturday of the month. Register here.
