Seattle Central Area libraryPosted: November 2, 2006
Several weeks ago, I swung by the opening of the new Seattle Central Area (Douglass-Truth) library. I came away quite impressed. I think it’s one of the most contemporary additions to the library system in Seattle sans the new Central Library of course. The PI just finished a review and came away disappointed that they didn’t tear down the old classical building and produce a far larger contemporary building. I think the merging of old and new is cool. Although, the article mentions the architects originally proposed a larger addition. I wonder what the original proposal looked like? In any event, happy to see the library bond continuing to introduce great architecture to the city.
