{seattle} listening the emp

July 28, 2015

Located in the Seattle Center is the Experience Music Project Museum (EMP). The EMP Museum is a nonprofit museum, dedicated to contemporary popular culture. It was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2000 and designed by the infamous Frank O. Gehry using over 21,000 aluminum and stainless steel shingles and 280 steel ribs. All of that is supposed to make the structure evoke the rock ‘n’ experience. I would say it’s pretty successful. The futuristic, rounded corners and strange color combination are what really make it stand out.

The EMP Museum isn’t just about the building though. There are experiences inside for sure, but I was pretty intrigued by the outside, which consisted of an amazing playground for children and adults alike. It was so high up it was actually a little scary to climb up! But aside from that, there were also mini structures set up that allowed everyone to create music for everyone to enjoy!
