Space Needle and EMP

The Space Needle and the colorful EMP building, to the left of the Needle, seen from Kerry Park in Queen Anne Hill.

 

The EMP or Experience Music Project building was designed by the famous American architect Frank Gehry. It was financed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who wanted a living museum to display the music coming out of the Pacific North West in the last 60 years - from The Kingsmen and Jimi Hendrix to Nirvana and Mudhoney.
