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.

 

Added to group "Cream of the Crop" 08/01/2005 as my most viewed photo (to date).

 

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

    truly an excellent shot of my favorite library in the USA.

    i'd be delighted if you'd like to add this to the brand-spanking-new in fluorescent light.
