Did someone call me? Actually, I don't hate modern architecture, and quite like the way the library looks from the outside. But yeah, those walls! Did they find cheap paint on sale, or was the designer color blind?
And I just don't find the library particularly user friendly.
But what do I know? I'm a fan of places like the late Twin Teepees, the Hat N' Boots, and the old Dog House. Out of it and proud of it.

I would suggest if you haven't been there to see it first. I happen to think in person it really quite a sight.
