Historical NoteReturn to Top

John Graham & Company began with the work of John Graham, Sr., who established himself as an architect in Seattle during the early 1900s. He formed a number of partnerships before establishing himself as Graham & Painter. His son, John Graham, Jr. also studied architecture and eventually joined his father's practice. Graham & Painter became John Graham & Company during the 1940s and continued until John Graham, Jr. retired from practice in 1986. After his retirement in 1986, John Graham & Company architect Rodney Kirkwood merged the company with the DLR Group to form DLR/John Graham Associates.

John Graham, Sr. (1873-1955)

John Graham, Sr. was born in Liverpool, England. He acquired his professional architectural skills in England through apprenticeship training. He moved to Seattle to establish himself as an architect in 1901, following a period of extensive travels that included a visit to the Puget Sound region. He briefly partnered with Alfred Bodley in 1904, before forming a partnership with David J. Myers in 1905. The partnership, Graham & Myers lasted from 1905 until 1910. Graham & Myers designed several apartment buildings, the Kenney Presbyterian Home, and several pavilions for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition.

After separating from Myers, Graham started his own practice in 1910. His earliest works from this era include the Joshua Green Building (1913); and the Ford Assembly Plant in Lake Union (1913). He worked as a supervising architect for many of Ford's buildings, opening an office in Detroit from 1914 to 1918. His works over the next decade were mainly commercial buildings characterized by classical elements and terracotta ornamentation, including the Frederick & Nelson department store building (1916-1918); the Dexter Horton Building (1921-1924); and an early branch of the Bank of California, (1923-1924).

Graham became very adept in the Art Deco style, designing several Art Deco buildings in Seattle, including the Roosevelt Hotel (1928-1929); the Exchange Building (1929-1931); the Bon Marche store (1928-1929); and, together with Bebb & Gould, the U. S. Marine Hospital campus (1931-1934). Graham formed a partnership with William L. Painter as Graham & Painter from 1936 until 1942. At the same time, John Graham's son, John Graham, Jr., joined the firm's office in New York. Once his son returned to Seattle in 1946, Graham began to transfer his practice to his son until his death in Hong Kong in 1955.

John Graham, Jr. (1908-1991)

John Graham, Jr. began his architectural training at the University of Washington in 1926 before transferring to Yale University where he received his B.F.A. in 1931. After a brief time in statistical merchandising for retail establishments, Graham joined his father's successful architectural practice in 1937, opening a branch office in New York City with William Painter as partner. The office, Graham & Painter, New York, lasted from 1936 until 1942, and focused on department store design. After World War II began, business declined and Graham closed the branch and began to design war housing and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) housing that included Washington DC's Suburban Heights (1944); and Sunny Brook (1942); as well as Edgewater Park in Seattle (1939).

Graham returned to Seattle in 1946, eventually taking over his father's architectural practice. Under John Graham, Jr., the firm designed over 1,000 commercial projects that included the Washington Natural Gas Headquarters (1964), and the Westin Towers in Seattle (1969). Perhaps most famously, John Graham and Company specialized in the design of large shopping malls, designing over seventy multi-million dollar shopping centers that included Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle (1950); and Capitol Court in Milwaukee (1957); Lloyd Center in Portland (1960); and the Ala Moana in Honolulu (1960). These regional shopping centers were the first of their kind in the country and Graham is widely credited with the design of the modern shopping mall.

Graham was licensed to practice architecture in ten states. After partnering with Roderick Kirkwood in 1974, the firm went on to complete the Bank of California Building in Seattle (1974); the Wells Fargo building in San Francisco (1966); the Alaska State Office Building in Juneau (1975-1975); and the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma (1984-1986). His most well-known project, however, is the design and execution of the Space Needle he developed with Victor Steinbrueck and John Ridley for the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. Graham retired in 1986, five years before his death in 1991.

Bebb & Gould, circa 1930
Two projects have been identified as part of the Carl Could architectural drawings collection that have been presented here for reference. Since the firm of Bebb & Gould is primarily associated with these projects, drawings pertaining to these projects can be found in the Carl Could architectural drawings collection. While continuing to operate his independent practice, John Graham, Sr. worked in association with the firm of Bebb and Gould on several projects during the early 1930s. The United States Public Health Marine Hospital, designed by Bebb & Gould with John Graham as an associate, is considered to be one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the Northwest.

John Graham, Sr. worked with Benjamin Marcus Priteca to design the Sand Point Housing Project during World War II. Marcus Priteca continuously maintained his own independent architectural practice as Marcus Priteca, Architect, 1911-c.1964.

John Graham & Company, 1942-1986
John Graham & Company evolved from John Graham, Sr.'s architecture practice, which began in 1910. After finishing his studies at Yale University, John Graham, Jr. joined his father's practice in New York in 1942. From 1942 until 1946, the two Grahams worked in separate offices in Seattle and New York. Once his son returned to Seattle in 1946, John Graham, Sr. began to transfer his practice to his son until his death in Hong Kong in 1955.Drawings contained in the John Graham & Company subseries are primarily associated with the work that John Graham, Jr. and the John Graham & Company firm did while John Graham, Jr. operated as managing partner. However, some earlier drawings during the time the two father and son's work overlapped in Seattle as John Graham & Company, from 1946 until 1955, cannot be exclusively attributed to either Graham with the available information. Drawings after John Graham, Sr.'s death in 1955 are attributed to the firm under John Graham, Jr. These drawings include proposal drawings, construction drawings, and architectural renderings, some available by photographic reproduction, with many by architectural delineators Earle Duff and Ken Duffin. Under John Graham, Jr., the firm grew substantially with offices throughout the United States and Canada, though the largest offices were based in Seattle and New York City. Project records in this subseries may contain records and designs from his partners and associates that can only be identified from the drawings as John Graham & Company. Architects who may be associated with these projects include Manson Bennett, Henry A. Birner, Arthur E. Edwards, Jack Follett, Alan Gerard, Alvin B. Harrison, Roderick Kirkwood, Ivar Paulsen, James E. Jackson, John Ridley, and Nathan Wilkinson, Jr.

Seattle architects Miller & Ahlson, who worked with John Graham, Sr. on the design for the Decatur Apartment building, were responsible for the master plan. The project included 77 houses: 50 homes designed by John Ridley, who later worked for John Graham & Company; 25 homes designed by C. C. Wollander; and 2 homes by Chiarelli & Kirk. It is unknown how this drawing relates to the project as John Graham and Company's involvement with the project cannot be determined and the drawing is dated later than the completion date of the project in 1951. The photograph series describes a set of photographs of residences that includes a similar residence from Riverbrook Homes in East Paterson, New Jersey, designed by John Graham, Jr. Each photograph is inscribed by hand on the back with "Garden Park Homes"; the photos may have been used as a reference, as they are believed to show the Riverbrook Homes development.

One photograph of an aerial view of the edge and outskirts of SeaTac, Washington, that has been altered to show the master site plan for a proposed project by the Ninelake Development Company. One photographic print of an architectural rendering by Earle Duff shows the Ninelake Development Company office building as a modernist building with windowed offices projected along the front of the building. During the 1950s, when these drawings were created, the Ninelake Development Company controlled more than 600 acres in Federal Way, south of the future SeaTac Mall. Development plans indicate the addition of modern industrial buildings and 650 homes and a shopping center to the area; both industrial and residential additions have been added in on the aerial view.

Northgate Shopping Center, 401 Northeast Northgate Way, Seattle, Washington
Alternate name: Northgate Mall.
The Northgate Shopping Center was conceived and designed by John Graham & Company with Rex Allison, president of the Bon Marche. Northgate's 66 acre location, approximately 9 miles outside of downtown Seattle, originally housed 80 stores interspersed with larger, anchoring department stores. The stores were accessed by outdoor pedestrian walkways with service tunnels below. The shopping center doubled in size after the construction of Interstate 5 and the shopping center's subsequent 25-store expansion in 1965. After continuous construction through the 1970s, the shopping center was fully enclosed in 1974. The property was acquired in 1987 by the Simon Property Group of Indianapolis. Northgate is widely credited as the first shopping mall in the United States.

  Proposed Oak Street Area Redevelopment Project, New Haven, Connecticut

Willard (Artist)
Two photographic prints, one in black and white and one in color, of an architectural rendering showing proposed development project with three rectangular multi-story apartment buildings separated by small parks. Highways are visible in the background.During the late 1950s, the federally funded Oak Street Area Redevelopment Project in New Haven rehabilitated several older buildings and razed several acres of land for a connector to the Connecticut Turnpike that would link New Haven's suburban areas to the downtown retail core and Yale University. As part of the project, they also sought to build several hundred additional square feet of office and retail space, slightly expand Yale University, and build multiple apartment buildings to house students. The photographed drawings were possibly intended as proposal drawings, as no significant connection between John Graham and the Oak Street Area Redevelopment Project could be determined. Similar proposal drawings for the nearby Church Street Area Redevelopment Project are also housed in this collection under Chapel Square Mall.

Two renderings show the front and back of the multi-story modernist building on the shore of Lake Washington; four additional renderings show the entrance with porte cochere, lounge, dining room, and a typical apartment residence with a view of Mount Rainier. This set of drawings was probably intended to be viewed together as a presentation set.The fifteen-story Park Shore cooperative apartment project was announced in 1960 as a development by the Presbyterian Ministries, now the Presbyterian Retirement Communities Northwest. The building opened in 1963 and featured 300 apartment residences, a central dining room, chapel, lobby, hobby shops, infirmary, and recreational facilities, for residents aged 62 and older. John Graham & Company later designed an aviary for the building's lobby in 1964.

Both drawings show a desert setting, one with visitor center at the top of a mountain approached by tramway and overlooking a city; one with a series of low buildings, motel, and parking lots at the base of desert mountains with a tramway leading into the peaks. These drawings were intended as proposal drawings for the Sandia Peak Tramway in Albuquerque. The Sandia Peak Tramway was built in 1966 but Graham's design was not used and no buildings except for the tram station were built. In this proposal, Graham was to build a 64-room hotel with a revolving restaurant as the terminus of a cable car line that would stretch 3.5 miles to a shopping center, hotel, and motel cluster. The retail and lodging areas would have also been designed by Graham.

The Sheraton Hotel was designed by John Graham & Company in 1979. The original design for the hotel was announced in 1977 and featured a triangular building with fifty-seven floors and 1200 rooms at a cost of $110 million; the original design was abandoned in 1978, due to rising construction costs, after demolition of the site's existing buildings. A scaled-down design, shown in these renderings, was announced at the end of 1978 that featured a triangular tower with thirty-four stories, 870 guest rooms and a three-story underground parking garage at a cost of $85 million. This design was used in the construction of the hotel, which was completed in 1982.

Bird's eye perspective of site shows shopping mall, parking areas, and surrounding roads.Southcenter Shopping Mall was conceived in 1957 as part of a larger effort to industrialize Tukwila, a community on the Duwamish River south of Seattle. The 85-acre enclosed shopping center was largest shopping center in the Metropolitan Seattle area and included 1.25 million square feet of retail and service areas, with air-conditioning and heating, and parking for 9,000 automobiles. The L-shaped shopping center originally featured the Bon Marche as the central anchoring tenant, with J. C. Penney, Nordstrom Best, and Frederick & Nelson as additional anchoring tenants. Department stores for Bon Marche and Frederick & Nelson were also designed by John Graham & Company. The shopping center bordered a the Tukwila-Andover industrial park developed simultaneously. The shopping center opened in 1968.
Photographs of the Southcenter Mall are described in the Photographs series.

Space Needle, Seattle, Washington
The Space Needle was constructed in 1962 by the Howard S. Wright Construction Company as part of the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle with its futuristic theme, Century 21. At the time of its completion in April 1962, the 605-foot Space Needle was the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. The tower's design was originally conceived by Edward E. Carlson, and refined by architects John Graham, Victor Steinbrueck, and John Ridley. Other designers who contributed to the Space Needle's design include UW Engineering professor Al Miller, artist Earle Duff, and designer Nate Wilkinson. Graham's design for the space saucer housing a revolving restaurant in the five-level tophouse dome was based on his previous design of the revolving restaurant at the Ala Moana in Honolulu, Hawaii; Graham later obtained the first U.S. Patent for a revolving restaurant in 1964. The Space Needle was designated a Historic Landmark by the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board on April 19, 1999. The Space Needle was renovated and remodeled in 2000.
Photographs of the Space Needle are described in the Photographs series.Additional preliminary sketches of the Space Needle by Victor Steinbrueck are held by University of Washington Special Collections.

West Seattle General Hospital site, 2600 Southwest Holden Street, Seattle, Washington
1 photographic print : 1 black and white photographic print
Roger Dudley (Photographer)
One photograph of an aerial view of West Seattle that has been altered to add in a site for the West Seattle General Hospital. The hospital is shown with several buildings across multiple blocks. The West Seattle General Hospital was constructed in phases, and it is unknown during which phase this drawing was made based on the buildings shown. No connection between John Graham and the design of the hospital can be determined.The West Seattle General Hospital moved from its location on the second floor of a commercial building at the West Seattle Junction to its location on Holden Street in 1961. The hospital was constructed in phases: the first phase saw the construction of a T-shaped building with 80 beds, designed by William Graff of Smith & Graff, in 1961; a three-story convalescent care center, designed by Peck & Merriweather, was constructed as the second phase in 1970; and, as the third phase, Peck & Jensen designed a new lobby, emergency area, and additional surgical rooms, laboratories, and specialist areas, in 1973. West Seattle General Hospital was purchased by Highline West Seattle Mental Health Center in 1995; the hospital was renamed West Seattle Psychiatric Hospital in 1997, and later renamed Navos in 2008.
