Space Needle: Looking Upwards

USA | 2018 | 44 min | Nik Kleverov

This film tells a story about an icon that draws eyes and inspires architects around the world. Standing on the world's first glass rotating floor 500 feet in the air is exhilarating and unnerving! Learn about the Space Needle and hear from the people who created it in 1962, its stewards through the years, and look through the glass to the future!
