What people are saying:

The Seattle Central Library is the flagship of the Seattle Public Library System, a famous deconstruction building. It is located in the center of the city, and is a building of 11-story (56-meter high) glass and steel. The library is open to the public on May 24, 2004. The 34,000-square-meter public library contains about 1.45 million books and other materials, including more than 400 computers open to the public and an underground public parking lot. The first year's use rate exceeded 2 million people. The library has a unique and prominent appearance that forms several separate "floating platforms", like being in a large cobweb.
