Modern buildings of Seattle, a city in transformation

We wouldn’t call Seattle a modern city because most of the buildings and houses are in our eyes classic normal architecture. However, between all these conventional constructions you occasionally see modern high rise towers.

Skyscrapers come in all kind of shapes, colors and mainly glass. We even saw an exceptional white church in the middle of the city center. We have the feeling that Seattle is transforming into a modern capital.

We zouden Seattle niet direct een moderne stad noemen want de meeste gebouwen en huizen zijn in onze ogen klassiek en een alledaagse architectuur. Tussen al deze conventionele gebouwen zie je af en toe moderne torengebouwen. 

 Wolkenkrabbers staan er in allerlei vormen, kleuren en voornamelijk uit glas. In het stadscentrum staat zelfs een moderne witte kerk. We hebben het gevoel dat Seattle zich transformeert in een moderne hoofdstad.
