This tour will introduce you to a variety of architectural highlights in the south Capitol Hill neighborhood bordering the Central District, one of Seattle's most populated areas undergoing a high-level of transformation.

Take a walk through Cal Anderson Park in the heart of Capitol Hill. Seattle's oldest Olmsted-designed park underwent a well-received renovation in 2005. This 7-acre park houses play areas for children, a wading pool, sports field, and now lidded reservoir among welcoming promenades. Water remains a defining element clearly stated by the reflecting pool and sculptural water feature.

From Cal Anderson walk over to The Bullitt Center, an ultra-green high performance building. You will be hosted by Deborah Sigler of the University of Washington's Center for Integrated Design housed within the Bullitt.

Round out this tour with a visit to the Chapel of St. Ignatius on the urban campus of Seattle University. Originally conceived as “seven different 'bottles of light' in a stone box” this is a famous architectural work of Steven Holl.
