Dutch Design in Seattle

The Central library in downtown Seattle is a Dutch architectural masterpiece built in 2004 and designed by Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Prince-Ramus. The structure's modern design elements are not for everyone, but whether you love or hate it, you can't take your eyes off.
The interior is considered by many critics to be cold and impersonal, however this could be the result of the library's blending of modern technologies and ancient technology such as the dewey decimal system.
