History Café: Minoru Yamasaki’s Place in Seattle Architectural History


Wednesday January 19


6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

World-famous architect Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986) is known in Seattle for designing three iconic buildings: the Pacific Science Center, the IBM Building, and the Rainier Tower. But there is much more to his complex and consequential relationship with the city of his birth. Professor Paul Kidder will explore Yamaski’s University of Washington training, his influence on local architectural styles, his battle with preservationists, and the relationship between his Seattle buildings and his New York World Trade Center design.

History Café is produced as a partnership between HistoryLink and MOHAI.
