    The Seattle Central Library was designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and was opened in 2004. It's a magnificent building.

    I think you'll find that's Rem Kool As! Love the shadows on the red carpet. And the sense I get from the right-hand side that I'm looking upwards, but the left-hand side tells I'm looking along.

    I like this a lot. A splash of colour and the leading lines contained in a grid pattern.

    Thanks Rob. Actually that grid section on the right is sloping down to ground level, at about a 45 degree angle I would guess. (I had to check some other pictures from the roll to be sure myself. o_O)

    Thanks a lot, Milan.

    I agree with Rob's comment about the perspective. What a wonderful building and a very fine picture of it Mr Moor. Fabulous stuff.
