Updated! – - Sorry for the formatting issues to anyone who tried to vote earlier.
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.

We had a hotly contested play-in round and now the field of 64 is set, let’s take a look at the current layout of the board.
