Architect Rem Koolhaas of The Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) designed a definite city Landmark. The Seattle Central Library is a delightful experience rich with volumes and spaces that reveal themselves differently depending on the position they are viewed from. Interesting to know that the main form givers are the functionality of the Library and the site restrictions.


Architect Joshua Ramus, partner at the Rem Koolhaas-led Office for Metropolitan Architecture explains: "Although the library is sculptural, it is not in any way an attempt to make a form. The library's appearance comes from pushing boxes around to stay within the height and setback restrictions and zoning codes."
