Cool house, err, Koolhaas

An e-mail from Ken reminded me of the new Seattle Public Library downtown. As he notes, Chicago gets the new Trump Tower monstrosity while Seattle receives the latest Koolhaas...

I've driven by it a few times, and it's a massive improvement over the previous building.
I must go visit after it opens in late May, if nothing but to visit the reading room at the top floor, with views of Puget Sound.
