A trip to Seattle — the Seattle Public Library, and Fiddler’s Green.
I love the spaces and angles and vistas of the library, and also its strange quilted ceiling.
And I especially adore any library that embraces its past (card catalogs) without calcifying it — these sculptures (20 feet up on the wall in a reading room) are a lovely memento mori.
I also love SPL for their book spiral
…and their printing block floor.
This art lives in the children’s room.
…elsewhere in Seattle, this is the most attractive nuisance-repelling fence I’ve ever seen.
I love how the bridge, the ballfield, and the wheel echo the shape of the mountain.
…and then it’s off to Fiddler’s Green! Photos from the ferry:
