|Building Notes||In 1957 Paul Thiry, one of Seattle's earliest pracitioners of European Modernism, was appointed prinicpal architect of Century 21, the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. The Nalley's Fine Food pavilion was a plastic form shell pneumatically applied on a frame of reinforcing rods and metal lathe. The exterior of the pavilion was constructed without a straight line or sharp angle. The unique oval contained a theater which showed movies of the great Pacific Northwest. In the lobby of the building were displays of the food products from Nalley's Tacoma-based company. |
