Night traffic in front of the MLK Memorial Library

November 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I love libraries and recently I was talking with a friend about libraries in DC and he mentioned that he thought the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library was quite ugly, despite being designed by the famous Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. I've always thought it looked like an interesting building that simply felt like what I expect a library should feel like, viz. something very utilitarian and calm.

Anyway, my friend's comments got me thinking. I wondered if I could take a photo of the building that would make it look interesting. So, I gave it a shot:
