Seattle Central Library
The Seattle Public Library’s Central branch is one of the most beautiful and unique buildings in the city. Constructed in 2004 and designed by renowned architects Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Prince-Ramus, the 11-story building is considered a modern marvel and attracts architectural devotees from around the globe. Over 2 million visitors toured the library in its first year. Its dramatic lines and long shadows make it one of my favorite buildings to photograph.
