After over half a century Seattle’s aging 605-foot-tall Space Needle, built in 1962, was in need of a major overhaul. The structure is a visual icon of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, but the experience of the user is all about view. The capabilities of architectural glass have improved significantly overthe decades since the structure’s original construction, providing significant opportunity for thedesign team. The new incarnation of the Needle is a celebration of contemporary architectural glazing. Join  Blair Payson of OKA and Richard Green ofFront Inc.  as they explore the renovation of Seattle's Space Needle.
