Seattle has a gorgeous skyline. Although the Space Needle is the signature skyscraper, there are many other highrises in Seattle that a very architecturally impressive. Which one is your favorite?

The original post-modern WAMU tower (1990), is a classic.

I still think it stands out as one of Seattle's best.

Currently, here's my top three.

1. Two Union Square
2. Washington Mutual Tower (the first two are nearly tied, but I'll give it to Two Union Square for now)
3. Columbia Center

These are actually the third, second, and first tallest buildings in Seattle respectively. I love Seattle's architecture!

I'd choose the Northern Life Tower if it were a choice:

The Space Needle is synonymous with Seattle.

To Caphillsea77:

I like all of those skyscrapers, but there are other ones that I like a lot that would be considered "skyscrapers." I would say there are about 5-8 others I like a lot and are architecturally impressive. Unfortunately, I dont know any of their names yet but will put them up in pictures soon and will hopefully know their names.

Other than modern skyscrapers, I noticed Seattle to have other great architecture in the form of low density, and medium density, as well as "old" architecture in downtown and other areas in Seattle as well. I dont know their names, but have pictures of most of my favorite architecture that I have seen so far in Seattle. I will put some of the pictures up soon in my own "Seattle pictures" thread.
