Space Needle Plaza
CallisonRTKL adds amenities to world-famous landmark.
CallisonRTKL solidifies the Space Needle’s status as Seattle’s most popular attraction with the expansion of a base-level public plaza and retail store. The addition of a glass-enclosed pavilion that mirrors the orbiting form of its “flying saucer” top expresses the spirit of the designated landmark’s original design, which debuted at the 1962 World’s Fair. The Space Needle’s more visible front door entrance, gathering areas and expanded retail options create an enhanced visitor experience that meets both civic and business interests.
