EXPERIENCE MUSIC PROJECT DIRECTOR OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION.
The Experience Music Project (EMP) director of design and construction Paul Zumwalt shows the media the inside of the under construction EMP at the Seattle Center in Seattle, March 16. The EMP, which is sponsored almost entirely by Microsoft co-founder billionaire Paul Allen, is touted as a high-tech, interactive museum which pays tribute to popular American music such as jazz, blues, hip-hop, punk rock and grunge. After three years of planning and development, the odd shaped, stainless steel-skinned structure located on lower Queen Anne Hill designed by architect Frank O. Gehry will open its doors to the public this summer. apb/Photo by Anthony P.
