Library escalators

My favorite photo from a 10-minute visit (that’s all the time I had) to Seattle’s Rem Koolhaas-designed Central Library:

Yes, the green is actually that bright. Jason Fried was in Seattle for a little longer than me, and had time to take quite a few other interesting photos around the library. They’re here. Jason has a shot taken from one of the escalators that makes a unique composition. Very interesting restrained use of color (albeit bright color) throughout the space.
