A design for a public library with 2 million volumes and has 3 million annual visitors. The design was conceived as the physical manifestation of the library's role as informational, cultural, and urban connection point. The crisscrossed floor plan offers simple ways of finding varied atrium spaces. The copper honeycomb skin offers shifting transparency and shields the glazed facade from solar exposure.
