After 30 years of waiting, the new San Diego Central Library is finally open.
Even though I can see the R2-D2 dome from my window, I haven't been inside since it opened a few weeks ago.
Luckily, architectural photographer Darren Bradley and local art authority Dave Hampton have made it inside.
Darren took a great set of photos that can be seen on his blog, Modernist Architecture.

Dave has written a piece for KPBS's Culture Lust about the art on display:
