Seattle Part 2: The Seattle Public Library

We spent some time exploring the Seattle Public Library by Rem Koolhass. It's a large, modern structure that opened in 2004. With a glass "skin" on the outside, it is filled with bright red stairwells and glowing yellow escalators inside. It has some interesting details, including an embossed typographic floor pattern on the lower level. While it makes for interesting photographs, I wonder how quickly it will all seem dated.
