Unbuilt; English-born architect John Parkinson ( produced this design for the State's competition to design a pavilion for the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. It was illustrated in the American Architect and Building News, 10/02/1892. Parkinson's design lost to that of Warren P. Skillings (1860-1939), a Portland, ME-born architect who transplanted to Seattle just after the Great Fire of 1889. Parkinson would leave WA State in 1894 when the worst of an economic recession was hitting Seattle, and relocate in Los Angeles, CA, where he became a major figure.
