  47. 47.  RAINWATER COLLECTION –  40,000-gallon water storage water tank  Used for landscape irrigation.  Prevents combined sewer overflows in Puget Sound.  Saves about 75,000 gallons of water per year.  WATERLESS URINALS The 16 urinals in the building save 720,000 gallons of water per year, enough to serve the indoor water needs of more than 13 homes. SUSTAINABLE SITE DESIGN  LIGHT POLLUTION REDUCTION Exterior lighting is shielded  DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING Zero potable (drinking) water is used for landscaping due to rainwater collection system  HEAT ISLAND REDUCTION Providing shade to exterior spaces and a light colored Energy Star® roof that reflects heat and light lessens this effect.
  48. 48. Public opinions :  Awarded for innovation and engineering in its "structural solutions".  Usage of the building is double the predicted volume.  CRITICISMS- Many are not too fond of its unusual design.  Condemned by the Project for Public Spaces, which noted "if the library were a true 'community hub,' its most active areas would connect directly to the street.
  49. 49. Personal Opinion  Rigorous analysis of 1. The site 2. The city 3. Its existing structures 4. Culture of people.  Exploration of the capabilities of various architectural materials available.  Care for the technologies from the beginning of the project.  Proper use of warm and cool colors.  Uniquesness of design  Much to be learnt from.
