look north

A great article on Northwest Modernism from the University of Washington alumni magazine. This article precedes the release of “Modern Views” a film by the UW Dept of Architecture and Studio/216. 

The documentary takes a look at the NW School’s roots in the 40s-60s with particular emphasis on our unique Pacific NW environment and UW influences. 

Featured in the film are some of our favorites including Paul Kirk (Magnolia Library, Meany Hall) and Paul Thiry (’62 World's Fair, The Frye, the endangered Normandy Park House). The film is set to premier May 20th at MOHAI Seattle.
