Sited on a raised plinth, the Library is a beacon from the freeway as its long butterfly rake emerges from the hillside. Organized around a white elliptical ‘sky garden’ containing a single magnolia tree, the library's programs emerge; a café and reading areas, a high-energy space for teens. The Children’s Library is separated from other collections as well, with the deep blue ‘story cone’ transporting kids to a magical world of words and imagination. Completed as will bruder architects ltd. with HGA Architects and Engineers.
