from the Space Needle website:

''The Space Needle is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world and is a treasured Seattle icon. Built for the 1962 World's Fair - the Century 21 Exposition whose theme was 'The Age of Space' - the tower's futuristic design was inspired by the idea that the fair needed a structure to symbolize humanity's Space Age aspirations. Since its grand opening on April 21, 1962, the landmark continues to symbolize the innovative and forward-thinking spirit of Seattle. Located at Seattle Center, the Space Needle stands at 605' tall and is one of the most photographed structures in the world.'' Read about the renovations »
