This distinctive building was designed to reflect the Ballard neighborhood's Nordic and maritime heritage, and as a green building that fosters sustainability. Yes that IS grass you see growing on the roof, and it is entirely intentional. The same architects that designed Seattle City Hall's grass roofed complex, also designed this much used and much admired branch library and service center. This coming weekend Ballard will hold its 4th annual Sustainable Ballard Festival
