the other library in Seattle
The Douglass-Truth branch of the Seattle Public Library has recently been expanded by Schacht Aslani Architects combining historic and contemporary architecture. The design creates a striking composition with its sculptural copper shape in contrast to the landmark 1914 building. Previously an icon of the city’s Jewish neighborhood, the museum today sits in the center of Seattle's African American community and also houses the Northwest's largest collection of black literature.
