I've been to the Seattle library twice now and I don't like it much. The walls loom over you and make you feel either too small or too big and anyway at the wrong angle.
The bathroom level was painted a uniform red that made the shapeless walls disappear with curves removing any reassuring sight lines. Very creepy.
On the whole a bit like a Terry Gilliam movie.
