Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Central Library opened in 2004 and was designed by Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Prince-Ramus of OMA[19] in a joint venture with LMN Architects and Front Inc. Facade Consultants.
OMA’s design for the Seattle Public Library--one of the firm’s most heavily anticipated projects to date--begins with a radical rethinking of the very nature of the library. Rather than merely package this traditional institution in a new way,OMA has completely reinvented it,transforming it wholeheartedly into a site able to aggressively orchestrate the coexistence of all available technologies for collecting,condensing,distributing,reading,and manipulating information.
The library will no longer be loyal to the book. In more architectural terms,the $156 million building has an angular,mesh like glass and metal skin that surrounds a series of floating public spaces:a kid’s area at the bottom,a living room for browsing,public meeting areas,and a coffee shop,a mixing chamber where patrons can work intensively with librarians,and a reading room at the top with views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound. In between these platforms are a series of programmatic boxes containing the more stable,or fixed,parts of the library program,including a continuous four-story book spiral where the entirety of the library’s books will be stored. The Seattle Public Library reveals new media technologies that have changed the status of the library in the contemporary city from a traditional repository for books to an information store. 
西雅图图书馆不再仅仅局限于书籍,这座耗资一亿五千六百万美元建筑,从建筑术语来讲,具有成角度扭曲的体块,类似网状的玻璃金属外表皮环绕着一系列的悬浮的公共空间:儿童活动区域在底层,逐层安排借书的公共起居室,会议区,咖啡,综合工作去以便使图书馆的资助人可以和图书馆管理人员紧密工作,最顶层是则安排公共阅览室,能够眺望远处普吉桑德的和瑞涅山的壮观景色。 在这些公共平台之间,则是一系列的功能容器,包括固定的、灵活的、和不同的图书馆的功能, 还安排了连续四层螺旋上升的连续的开放书架,这里贮存了图书馆所有的藏书。西雅图公共图书馆揭示了新的媒介技术在当代城市人文环境对传统图书馆的影响,将图书馆从传统的图书贮藏的机构转换成信息汇集和交流传播的场所。
