Thanks for posting this! I’ve seen pics of some of these, but not all. Awesome!

Nice collection. (Though #7 is not as cool in real life as it looks in the photo. It actually looks more like a cheesy tourist trap. I imagine the same is true for #15.)

#6 (Kansas Public Library) is wonderful! It looks like a Willy Wonka factory for books.

That’s actually the parking garage for the KC Public Library. The library itself is pretty typical. http://blogs.pitch.com/plog/2009/02/kcs_library_is_the_sixth_stran.php
