"The Architect" is witty and hilarious, the more so if you know anything about Seattle and the history of its built (or not) environment.

An bemusing and amusingly accurate portrayal of Seattle architecture and its circuitous community development process. Includes complex along with predictable characters who play out their roles in a short amount of space. Get ready for the hornets nest a proposed redesign of the city center caused by a talented full-of-himself architect.
