Mackenzie Hall at University of Washington, Built 1960


Mackenzie Hall on the University of Washington Campus was completed in 1960 by Decker & Christenson and Paul Hayden Kirk. It is home to offices for the Foster School of Business including The Global Business Center, Center for Leadership & Strategic Thinking, Consulting & Business Development Center, and the Foster School Alumni Team.

The inner courtyard of the building is quite stunning, and features a fountain that was moved from the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. The fountain was designed by Seattle native and University of Washington alumnus George Tsutakawa.

George Tsutakawa, February 22, 1910 – December 18, 1997, is a world-renowned fountain designer. He designed more than 70 fountains in public spaces during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
