So bad, it’s good

The beauty that is the King County Administration building

I took this photo a while ago, the sun was hitting the building just right. I have to admit I really (not even in a secret shame kind of way) love this building. Then my friend Jim told me the best story ever: when Rem Koolhaus was in town once during the design of the Seattle Public Library, he saw some of the “site context” photos that the team had around, and when he saw the picture of this building (literally 2 blocks away from his building) he freaked out that no one had bothered to mention to him that there was a diamond patterned facade right next door. Seriously.
