University of Washington Professor Jeffrey Karl Ochsner presents two lectures on Seattle’s architectural history on Saturday April 9 and Saturday April 16 at the Central Library in downtown Seattle (1 to 3 pm both days).

The two lectures will cover the history of Seattle’s architecture from 1880 to the present. Ochsner will discuss urban development, building types, stylistic directions and the major architects who shaped the architecture of the city and region. Each lecture will last approximately 90 minutes to allow time for questions from the audience.
