Description
Dutch architect Rem Koolhass has described the steel, glass, and aluminum library as “large but not monumental.” Aluminum mesh sandwiched between glass panels reduces heat and glare on the interior, and the glass grid provides seismic stability. The view from the soaring atrium changes with each movement of the sun and clouds. The building garnered a 2005 national AIA Honor Award for Architecture. #Library #Rem_Koolhaas #Seattle #WA #Washington
