The Alaskan Architecture Walking Tours can be an introduction to the most significant buildings in the country or it can focus on areas of special architectural interest to your group.

Snow Words Anchorage Architecture
‘Snow Words’ is an abstract time piece embodying a code, an installation designed by Cecil Balmond. The secret to the artwork is based on repeat motifs that in turn are spaced out in an aperiodic sequence. Cecil was selected as the winning artist to create an artwork for the Crime Detection Laboratory in Anchorage.
