Seattle Art Museum The Seattle Art Museum (commonly known as "SAM") is an art museum located in Seattle, Washington, USA. It maintains three major facilities: its main museum in downtown Seattle; the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM) in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, and the Olympic Sculpture Park

History The "Art Ladder": the main staircase of the 1991 Venturi building, now integrated into the expanded SAM as a free public space

The Hammering Man at the SAM In 1983–1984, the museum received a donation of half of a downtown city block


Arch : Andrea paladio / Villa Capra "La Rotonda"

The site selected was a hilltop just outside the city of Vicenza. Unlike some other Palladian villas, the building was not designed from the start to accommodate a working farm. This sophisticated building was designed for a site which was, in modern terminology, "suburban". Palladio classed the building as a "palazzo" rather than a villa

Design

The design is for a completely symmetrical building having a square plan with four facades, each of which has a projecting portico. The whole is contained within an imaginary circle which touches each corner of the building and centres of the porticos
