The North West as a whole is not as widely broadcasted for being a tourists heaven, but I am lucky enough to be in Seattle for the first week of my Spring Break.
The library, designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, is a minimalistic haven of books, filled with all types of reference documents, magazines, and even audiobooks. It made me, a person born in a digital generation, marvel at the books, probably because of how the light colors contrasted with the racks of red and blue bindings. But, perhaps the most amazing part (and yes, it was deliberate) was how the museum was designed to look like a stack of books from the outside.
Truly brilliant design from the Dutchman, more to come from Seattle.
