Photographer's Note

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."
- Jorge Luis Borges (1899 - 1986)

Going up the escalator in Downtown Seattle Central Library.

The library is a very interesting piece of architecture, with every floor a different color, red and yellow very prevalent.

The Seattle Central Library opened in 2004 and was designed by Rem Koolhaas of OMA in a joint venture with LMN Architects. In 2007, the building was voted #108 on the American Institute of Architects' (AIA) list of Americans' 150 favorite structures in the U.S. The building received a 2005 national AIA Honor Award for Architecture.
