My favorite ones are college librariesby Bob Kelleylike the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at Hopkins in Baltimore.
It's mostly underground. I heard it was designed as a bomb shelter. The Wikipedia entry on Hopkins makes no mention of that, but the section about the library is not exhaustive.
It's six stories tall but four of the stories are underground. The interesting thing is they designed it so all levels get light from outside.
