The Sheriff of Nottingham in the USA – Part Nine – San Francisco to Seattle

A cold wet English summer’s day. It’s raining and we’re off to Seattle after breakfast.

I guess we’ll have all the usual grace and charm of the US airport staff and then when we land, its straight into the Rock and Roll Museum.

A Frank Gehry designed (he of Guggenheim Bilbao fame) building and a museum that draws totally divided opinions. From it being an architect’s public showing off (that’s the polite description) with no substance to the exhibition itself, to it being truly world class.

It’ll be good to see in order to judge for ourselves what world class means in terms of iconic buildings and understand the scale and budget of what they have delivered.

As usual, a fuller update with pictures later.
