Suzzallo & Allen Libraries

Cathedral? No, library.
When visiting Seattle, make sure to stop by the University of Washington--one of the most beautiful college campuses in the U.S. Cherry trees, lakeshore, and views of glaciated Mt. Rainier surround a cluster of Neo-Gothic buildings. The Suzzallo library, built in the 1920's, is the central masterpiece.

Inside, taking up the entire western side of the library is the Graduate Reading Room: 250ft(76 m) long, 52ft(16 m) wide, with a 65ft(20 m) high ceiling. With oak paneling, carved sandstone walls and a Gothic vaulted ceiling, this is truly a 'cathedral of learning.'
