Shaping Seattle Architecture

The second edition of Shaping Seattle Architecture, edited by Jeffrey Karl Ochsner, is now available in bookstores. The original ground breaking book of architectural biographies and architectural essays was originally published in 1994. This new edition corrects some minor editorial errors, expands on the number of biographies and essays, as well as including short biographies of additional local architects that made significant architectural contributions to our community.

Our principal, Larry E. Johnson, AIA, made some contributions to this edition, with additional information on Ellsworth Storey, and short bios of other lesser-known architects who practiced in the Pacific Northwest.

We congratulate Professor Ochsner, and his other major contributors, particularly David Rash, for this exemplary academic achievement.
