Seattle Public Library ~ A civic icon and a functional, user-friendly building offering many different services and spaces. Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Ramus were the principal designers of the building. The glass in the library would cover 5 ½ football fields. About half of the building’s panes are triple-layered glass with an expanded metal mesh sandwiched between the two outer layers. Also worth noting: The building has sustainable systems that lessen its energy and environmental impact. Other features include automatic book sorting and conveyance, self-checkout for patrons, pervasive wireless communications among the library staff, and over 400 public computer terminals.
