    The Salt Lake City Public Library by Moshe Safdie is a remarkable modern landmark for a remarkable city.

    This six-page photo essay explores the library inside and out, through two impressive atriums and across the dramatic outside ramp-wall, to the sublime interior stairways and a children's reading room hidden under the arctic pack ice.

    The all-around transparency and multiple framings of Safie's building keep the Utah rugged skyline ever-present as an orienting backdrop.

    We hope you'll enjoy these images, and share your own impressions of the library in the architecture forum.   >>>
