Quite like it.

Most of this buildings are really ugly, especially the violin/piano thing in China. However, I liked the Kansas City Public Library.

Terrible I say! Sure, the old National Library must have been some Romanesque style building and the Czechs' want to build a new modern structure, but it just feels so out of place, in such a historic city with it's decent mix of modern and old style architecture. It's hardly the modern style architecture that would be fitting for Prague.

It should be noted that the Kansas City Library is actually the parking garage across the street from the library.
