The Ballard Library would already be exciting on account of its sleek and heavily stylized architecture, but when you add in the fact that it has a decidedly eco-friendly slant as well it becomes something more altogether.
The building features an out-of-this-world green roof with over 18,000 low-water plants that serves the dual function of regulating temperature while also succeeding at decreasing the load on the city's sewer system. Furthermore, the Ballard Library is also home to 17 solar panels that power various art pieces within the building.
