Shaping Seattle Architecture, edited by Jeffrey Karl Ochsner, has been awarded the Heritage Public Award from Historic Seattle. The awards ceremony will be held May 12 at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are available online.
This wonderful book celebrates a wide range of people who helped form the region's built environment. This second edition provides updated information about many of the architects and firms profiled in the first edition and includes essays on the buildings of the Coast Salish people, who inhabited Puget Sound prior to Euro-American settlement; the role that architects played in speculative housing developments before and after World War II; and the vernacular architecture built by nonprofessionals that make up a portion of the fabric of the city.
