Seattle’s Architecture Showdown: The Final Four

Once upon a time in the Pacific Northwest

What is Seattle’s best building?
We are asking Seattle’s design community to cast votes based solely upon individual matchups. Our voters (that’s you!) will be asked to weigh each building on its own merits. At the end of each week we will tally up the votes then report the play-by-play and results right here.

It’s all come down to these final two rounds.
3 buildings and 1 park will do battle to determine which is the best Architectural work in Seattle.
