Seattle native and University of Washington graduate Minoru Yamasaki gave us the United States Science Pavilion for the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. He designed the iconic Rainier Tower and what we now know as Puget Sound Plaza. His most famous work, however, is New York City's World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. For more information, visit HistoryLink.org, the free online encyclopedia of Washington state history.
