Building History

The Spokane-based architectural firm of Whitehouse and Price designed both the University of Washington's Music and Art Buildings, both completed in 1950. These two Gothic / Elizabethan buildings closed off the northeast end of the Humanities Quadrangle begun in the late 1910s.

Building Notes

An addition to the Music Building was considered in 1967, one matching Alfred Croonquist's Art Building addition to the north. The UW Admnistration could not find funds to erect this pendant addition for Music.


An interior addition was finished in 1980.

The University of Washington performed $2,708,871 worth of voluntary seismic upgrades to the UW Music Building, beginning on 02/06/2019.
