Historic Seattle and friends will be showing our love for the Nuclear Reactor Building (aka More Hall Annex) on the University of Washington campus at noon on Friday, February 13. We’ll be taking a group photo and showing off our homemade valentines to the building, also known as “heart bombing.” Heart bombing is a tradition that’s only a few years old, and is a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day through public displays of affection for endangered and underappreciated places.
Please join us and bring your own homemade valentine to the building! Here’s a campus map—look for More Hall Annex.
The Nuclear Reactor Building is endangered because the UW is proposing to demolish the National Register of Historic Places-listed building and replace it with a new Computer Science and Engineering facility.
