Carlson as a napkin doodle and given to architect John Graham, of John Graham and Co., who produced the final saucer design. Graham was the designer of the nation's first shopping mall, Seattle's Northgate Mall. Credit for the architecture and design also goes to John's partner Victor Steinbrueck, UW engineering professor Al Miller, artist Earle Duff, designer John Ridley, and design partner Nate Wilkinson. |
