TileVault: The Skylights of Seattle's Underground

TileVault: The Skylights of Seattle's Underground

What: Glass tiles in the sidewalk that double as skylights for our underground ghost town
Where: Seattle's International District
When: Photo taken April 25, 2008
Why: The swirled glass is beautiful underfoot, and sends our imagination reeling with how it must look from the bottom up.

Ever since we were little, we've imagined installing these antique tiles between the stories of our dream house. Though born and raised in Seattle, we've never taken the underground tour, which is apparently lit by light streaming in through the purpose-built skylights.
