I am an armchair fan of architecture. In particular Gehry and Kahn. Yesterday I was in Seattle for business and happened to swing by the new Seattle public library while on a taxi ride to a meeting. The Rem Koolhaus building is certainly unique though reminiscent of the I.M. Pei triangle at the Louvre. I am so sad that I didn't get to go inside as the virtual tour you can find here really shows how amazing the building is.
