Seattle Library and the Homeless

Great architecture is more than a building. The Seattle Central Library designed by Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Prince-Ramus of OMA/LMN executes this sentiment to a T. This short film by Tomas Koolhaas(the architect’s son) intertwines some beautiful shots of the building with a conversation a local homeless person. As he navigates into the center of the building the man talks about the resources and solace that the library has given him. Not just an escape from the rain, but access to books, computers, and even instruments. These are the simple things we take for granted, but without them it would unimaginable to stay positive and get back on your feet.
