Libraries hold a special place in my heart, and I remember visiting the NYPL with its breathtaking-ness and awe, absolutely entranced. But in terms of interaction with the public and creating bold spaces, the Seattle Central Library blows it out of the ballpark. Just look.
(It’s stunning. The interior of elevators is neon yellow. There’s an entire floor that’s painted red. For better photos, check out Minimally Minimal.)
