the green ascent

This Seattle Central Library escalator takes visitors up to the

"spiral stacks", a unique architectural characteristic of the

building. Instead of floors, the library stacks spiral upward

allowing people to walk between "floors" without the need for stairs.

And yes, the escalator is fluorescent green and appears to glow.

Featured in top 10 for "Interestingness" on 07/30/2005, whatever that means.
