The second lecture for the series, “Welcome to the Future: Century 21 and Living Modern,” is happening Tuesday, June 12 at the Center House/Armory Building at Seattle Center, from 7 to 8:30 pm.
Susan Boyle’s lecture, “Northwest Architects of the Seattle World’s Fair,” considers the architects who designed the Century 21 exhibit buildings and the context of their work in the Northwest. Famous designers from the region and beyond created the fairgrounds and fantastic buildings. Paul Thiry, Lawrence Halprin, Alan Liddle, Paul Kirk, Raymond Loewy, Victor Steinbrueck, Minoru Yamasaki, John Graham, Jr., NBBJ, Bob Dietz, and Roland Terry among others are recognized for their enduring Modern style legacy.
