The fabulous architecture of the modern Seattle Central library .. HDR

we passed thru Seattle on our way to and back from London . much cheaper flight than from Vancouver . and i really wanted to see this modern landmark .

inside is just as amazing .

this was my holy grail to photograph in Seattle

 

Over 2 million individuals visited the new library in its first year. It is the third Seattle Central Library building to be located on the same site at 1000 Fourth Avenue, the block bounded by Fourth and Fifth Avenues and Madison and Spring Streets. The library has a unique, striking appearance, consisting of several discrete "floating platforms" seemingly wrapped in a large steel net around glass skin.

 

LARGE IS BEST
