The Seattle Center has seen some pleasant new architecture and design in the ten+ years since I last visited. This is an identifying sign outside the Armory building, formerly known as the Seattle Center House, though before that it was, apparently, an armory. It’s been renovated to open up the interior to good effect. Not sure what the logic is behind the O shape, but it’s clearly popular with the kids.

The muzzle of a cannon?
The “O” comes from the circles that make up the Seattle Center logo (home of the Armory). And the Armory is the center of the Center. Olé!
To Kristine’s comment, the “O” is in the SC logo, and it represents International Fountain (which is round), the heart and soul of Seattle Center.
