SLC Public Library

Moshe Safdie Architects designed this gorgeous modern Library in the heart of Salt Lake City. I have actually returned to SLC for the sole purpose of visiting the library again - it is THAT compelling! Great public gathering spaces; intimate book carols in a swooping architecture feature which allows spaces to be private but also visually engaged with the more public areas which they overlook; structure to respond to the area's seismic activity; stunning overlapping and interlocking spaces, stairs and features... it is truly a building to be experienced through the journey. Hopefully a few photos will tempt you to visit next time you are near!

Architecture: In Photographs

Blurb recently introduced a new feature to preview books within your blog, so I thought I'd try it out here.  If you don't already know about the wonderful opportunity presented by self-publishing on demand, you owe it to yourself to check out Blurb.  They provide a great product at an affordable price.  I love the way the books look and feel (the hardcover image wrap is priciest version, but really lovely!)  See for yourself by checking out this portfolio I designed of my architectural photography:
