Illinois Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped | Tigerman McCurry Architects
My local library growing up, great example of friendly, modern design.

"A building for the handicapped that tries to be far more than simply “barrier free” suggesting that blind persons are as entitled to metaphorical symbolism as are the sighted. Tightly linear for the purposes of tactile movement and color coded (perimeter: red; structure: yellow; mechanical equipment: blue, etc.) because the last thing a blind person can “see” is bright color bathed in light, the building has several metaphorical inversions. "

“Star Wars” despots vs. “Star Trek” populists - Salon.com
"Just what bill of goods are we being sold, between the frames?

* Elites have an inherent right to arbitrary rule; common citizens needn’t be consulted. They may only choose which elite to follow.

* True leaders are born. It’s genetic. The right to rule is inherited.

* Justified human emotions can turn a good person evil."
