Space Needle Interesting Facts

The inspiration for the Space Needle, an icon of Seattle today, came from an unlikely source and to an unlikely artist. As Edward E. Carlson sat in a coffee house in Stuttgart, Germany, he sketched an illustration of what would go on to be the Space Needle – he was inspired by the city’s Stuttgart Tower and wanted a similar dominating structure to be erected at the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. He wanted the tower to embody the space age theme, which was all the rage back then. Carson’s original design saw many transformations before his team decided on a final one, and after much recce, a plot of land matching the dimensions of the design was found just 13 months before the World’s Fair opening. Construction started and went on at a brisk pace, and in a matter of months the five level tophouse was finished with its colourful coats of paint – Astronaut White, Orbital Olive, Re-Entry Red and Galaxy Gold – all in keeping with the space theme. Needless to say, Space Needle (7)the Space Needle was a big hit at the World’s Fair and has since hosted a diverse number of celebrities and VIPs over the decades.

  • The Space Needle monument has closed only ten times (and only for a few hours each time) over the course of its almost 5 decade history – this was due to extremely strong winds. In fact, the building’s structure is so strong that it can withstand speeds of up to 200 mph – however, the elevators aren’t able to operate in such weather. The elevators which face the wind operate under reduced speeds (or are even closed) to ensure the safety of the guests.
  • The Space Needle’s structure has weathered dangerous earthquakes and tremors over the year as well. The most severe among these was in 2001, an earthquake that was 6.8 on the Richter scale!
  • The Space Needle structure was built at the relatively small cost of $4.5 million.
