kriticizing koolhaas

Project for public spaces offers an alternative critique of seattle's new library, designed by rem koolhaas and almost universally praised by architecture critics. while they, too, agree that the library succeeds in creating comfortable community hubs but is too isolated from the surrounding community. I have absolutely no way of arguing this one way or another, having never been to seattle - BUT, pps is also asking for submissions of other buildings that meet their criteria for great public places. email submissions to the them, but please post LA suggestions here.
