A librarian is working away upstairs as a patron proceeds downstairs. Simultaneous views of multiple floors are possible in many places in the incredible layout of Seattle's Central Library, completed in 2004. This is a curving stairway down to the 3rd floor which is known for its red reflective surfaces. You might dream of tomato soup for days after spending time there, or perhaps recall a childhood impression of going into the gullet of the whale with Pinocchio :-).
