Happy 07/07/07 everyone. That's quite a convergence! Thought I would show you a convergence of old and new icons of Seattle. Calder's "Eagle" sculpture is a very promenant and popular piece in the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park (viewed here from the waterfront) and has become a become a symbol of sorts here. Behind in the distance is the 1962 Expo World Fair's Space Needle which just celebrated its 45th anniversary as the unofficial symbol of Seattle. Also present is a building that symbolizes the current trend in buildings and lifestyle, the Seattle condominium building, many of which are being built all over the city to increase urban density in the city's move toward greener, more sustainable living.
