As inaugural post on this blog I just want share a light-hearted note.
As a full-fledged nerd, I certainly love libraries. The library on the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo campus, where I work, is a wonderful place simply because it is a library.
However, I’ve always felt it looked like a building you would use to burn books rather than store books. In the image below, one can almost imagine the books are aglow:
In its favor, I will note that a colleague in architectural engineering assures me that the building is seismically sound.
Again, I love the library so this is just a light-hearted post - it’s probably just the brutalist architecture that gets to me.funny
