Seattle Public Library

Sometimes I must feature things that are neither in E.P.A. nor around the bay. The Seattle Public Library is one of those things.It’s a tremendous building, designed by a fellow named Rem Koolhaas.It opened to the public in 2004.Classic rock fans will get this reference: it’s reminiscent of the cover of The Who’s album “Tommy”.While visually breathtaking, the layout is confusing. It’s easy to get lost.One section is all red. Like being inside a chamber of the heart.Local wags have called it ‘the biggest, best-designed homeless center in the world’.
