Professor Michael Lewis has an article in the WSJ about the Fisher Fine Arts library at the University of Pennsylvania. This stood out for me:

Except for our dwellings, there are few buildings we come to know intimately. A college library is one exception, a building we tend to inhabit fully, day and night. And even if critics did not respect Furness’s brooding building, its users have always loved it, as much for its tactile richness as for its generous light and space.

(h/t CHenry and Alan Cordova ’06)
