Space Needle


Seattle - space needle appears to be the tallest building
The Space Needle is probably the best-known landmark of Seattle, Washington. It was originally built for the 1962 World's Fair.

The Space Needle is 605 feet (184 meters) high, and 138 feet (42 meters) wide at its widest point. The observation deck is 520 feet (158 meters) above the ground ground, and the SkyCity restaurant is 152 meters (500 feet).

In many photographs of Seattle, the Space Needle appears to rise above the rest of city's skyscrapers, however this is caused by a trick of perspective. This is because the Space Needle is 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers) to the Northwest of the skyscrapers, and most common camera angle places the Space Needle in the foreground.

Product Description:
Space Needle: The Spirit of Seattle, an illuminating new book about Seattle s iconic needle, was released on the 50th anniversary of the Needle. Extensively researched and written by Knute Skip Berger, it provides a detailed account of the Space Needle s conception, funding, and construction 50 years ago, as well as it s important role in the Century 21 Worlds Fair in 1962 and how it helped define contemporary Seattle in the 50 years after the fair. Berger, columnist for Seattle Magazine and the on-line Seattle news source Crosscut, was named Writer-in-Residence at the Space Needle last year and has used the opportunity to interview a broad spectrum of people who were associated with the construction, design and management of the Space Needle and to dive deep into Space Needle archives and collections for here-to-for untold stories about the storybook structure. With over 210 images, both historical and contemporary, this 184pp coffee table book features the best of the classic images of the needle, as well newly discovered images.

Product Description:
What is that hovering over the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle, Washington? Is it part of a movie set? Is it a publicity stunt? Could it be...an actual spaceship? When you first spy the soaring Space Needle, high above Seattle, it's easy to be confused. The people who designed it more than 50 years ago would be happy to know that their building still amazes and mystifies. They wanted to create something that looked as if it had come from the future, just in time for the 1964 World's Fair. The obstacles they faced, the problems they solved, and the decisions they made have turned the Space Needle into more than just an incredible site to visit - it makes for an incredible story.
