Seattle Central Library

That's us in the reflection above...

We were on the lookout for innovative uses of color and materials at the Seattle Central Library designed by Rem Koolhaas and LMN Architects. Our arhcitectural tour guide, Jeff, informed us that it actually has silver US Green Building Council LEED rating. Aaron was a fan of the book spiral (think parking garage). As always, Nate was into the comfortable seating. Chelsea was all over the way-finding systems - especially the chartreuse escalators. Four years after opening, this library is as provocative as ever. We are lucky to have it here in the Emerald City!
