A Glass Pyramid of Books

If the Egyptians built stone pyramids for Pharoahs, we're building glass pyramids for books. This is a library in Rotterdam, but it reminds me of the new Central Library here in Seattle. I've been to our library several times but have never checked out a book from it -- I just like to walk around such a unique, free, and open building. It's more like a park than a bookstore, and that's OK with me. I've also walked around the library in Back Bay/Copland Square in Boston with a similar sense that just walking around can be part of the library experience. Maybe someday I'll get the chance to walk around this library in Rotterdam too. For now we've got the pictures at this link.
