Space Needle, Seattle

I was impressed by the Seattle Space Needle, which I believe was one of the first of its kind when it opened in the early 1960’s, and is a great example of Modernist design.

It was an incredible daring design, particularly because it was primarily designed and envisioned in the 1950’s.

It’s actually more impressive at night, when the light shines up on it a dramatic fashion.

I zoomed in on this person below us on the street from the observation deck. It’s actually shorter than the Gateway Arch.

I have no idea why the top of the Space Needle is orange, as it’s not normally that color. I noticed that it bears a striking resemblance to the Planetarium in Forest Park.
