  • La Rainier Tower est un gratte-ciel de 157 mètres de hauteur construit à Seattle aux États-Unis dans l'État de Washington en 1977. Il abrite des bureaux sur 31 étages desservis par 12 ascenseurs. L'immeuble est l'un des très rare gratte-ciel de la planète dont la base est plus étroite que le corps principal du bâtiment. Il est surnommé « bâtiment castor » par les habitants de la ville, ressemblant à un tronc rongé par des castors. Le piédestal de l'immeuble mesure 37 mètres de hauteur. L'emprise de la base au sol est de seulement 25 % de la superficie des étages supérieurs. Les architectes sont l'agence Minoru Yamasaki & Associates (qui avait conçu les tours du World Trade Center de New York) et l'agence NBBJ (fr)
  • Rainier Tower is a 41-story, 156.67 m (514.0 ft) skyscraper in the Metropolitan Tract of Seattle, Washington, at 1301 Fifth Avenue. It was designed by Minoru Yamasaki, who designed the World Trade Center in New York City as well as the IBM Building, which is on the corner across the street from Rainier Tower to the southeast. Its construction was completed in 1977. The skyscraper has an unusual appearance, being built atop an 11-story, 37 m (121 ft) concrete pedestal base that tapers towards ground level, like an inverted pyramid. Beneath the tower was Rainier Square, an underground shopping mall connecting with One Union Square, which is owned by the University of Washington (UW). This shopping center was demolished in 2017. Both the mall and tower were originally named after Rainier Bank, which was merged in the 1980s into Security Pacific, which was eventually merged into Bank of America. The tower was named after Security Pacific in 1989 until UW chose to rename it back to the more familiar "Rainier Tower" in 1995. Locals often refer to it as the "Beaver Building" as its physical appearance looks like a tree being felled by a beaver. It had also been referred to as the "golf tee" building. In 2015, the University of Washington proposed an 850 ft office tower to occupy space on the same block as the Rainier Tower. The project also includes a twelve-story hotel. Construction began in September 2017 with completion projected in 2020. (en)
