It’s Hard To Stay Quiet When It Comes to the Seattle Public Library


Big pretty buildings don’t always continue to generate press after their much-ballyhooed openings but the Rem-ified Seattle Public Library still has nice things said about it almost two years later. We enjoyed Natalia Ilyin‘s treatise about how even though she’s wary of modernism, she actually has grown quite fond of the place. And we were simply delighted with Design Within Reach’s Rob Forbes recent piece about–if you believe it–actually using the library. We especially love how he realizes renting a car to get there doesn’t seem to fit–so he takes public transportation to visit the public library.

Since Seattle is somewhere some of us are headed later today, we’re wondering if anyone can point us in the direction of the ideal architectural afternoon up in that drizzly corner of the planet. To us, it’s a toss up between the library and the new Olympic Sculpture Park and we only really have time for one (we’ve already been to the Space Needle, mind you). If you feel strongly one way or another about what we should check out and report back to you, let us know. We live to please.
