Seattle Center Arches

Pacific Science Center Arches

arches-at-nightSince the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, Pacific Science Center’s arches have been a familiar part of the Seattle skyline. Designed by Minoru Yamasaki, Pacific Science Center’s white arches rise above a court of reflecting pools. At night, they light up the sky with their vibrant colors – green for St. Patrick’s day, orange for Halloween and many more.

They really are a sight to behold, especially at night.  The first picture was taken by me one night in 2011. The second is from Pacific Science Center’s website with their description. When I first saw them, it reminded me of the original War of the Worlds move of the alien spaceships. I could almost imagine these arches picking their ‘legs’ off the ground, with cement and rebar trailing behind them.

What do they remind you of?
