seattle library

One of the highlights of my visit to Seattle was a tour through its new library, designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaus. Coolest building I've ever been in. Everything about it -- from the quilted ceiling to the Dewey decimal numbers inlayed into the floor -- is spot on cool.

It's the exact opposite of another major building in Seattle, designed by the world's most famous architect. But more on that later...

Meantime, click the image above for a slideshow tour. The place is so beautiful it makes even my point-and-shoot pictures look good.
