763. The Central University Library, UC San Diego


Dear Louis,

The iconic Brutalist Geisel Library (originally Central Library)
located on the main campus of the University of California,
San Diego, was rededicated in 1995 in honor of children's
author Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss).
The original idea for this library conceived by architect
William Pereira was a treelike building including a spherical
books repository resting at the top of a massive structural
trunk.
In one of the most popular children's books written and
illustrated by P.D. Eastman and named Go, Dog. Go! all kind
of different dogs run to a big dog party held on top of a tree.

Happy birthday Louis!
