Built on the site of the original Air Force ROTC building and the Pipe and Machine Shop, which were both Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition buildings, and both burned to the ground in April 1961; Bassetti designed Loew Hall as an ensemble piece with the UW Engineering library next door. Loew Hall won an Honor Award from the Seattle Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 12/1969. The jury that decided upon the winners consisted of: Paul Thiry, Architect; Alan Liddle, Architect; Robert Frasca, Architect; Jack Robertson, Engineer; Einar Syvertsen, Planner. The panel also selected University of Washington Engineering Library, also by Fred Bassetti and Company, Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Everett, WA, by Grant, Copeland and Chervenak and Associates, Architects, and the Port Ludlow Beach Club, by A.O. Bumgardner and Partners. Loew Hall was connected to the Engineering Library by a tunnel.
