A Team's Innovative Library Design Helped Bridge Neighborhoods

It's a world of haves and have nots. One city built a library to erase barriers. As part of an extensive public revitalization plan, government sponsors in Calgary, Alberta, Canada launched the five-year, CA$245 million Calgary New Central Library project. The four-story, 240,000-square-foot (22,297-square-meter) library was designed to provide a striking cultural and architectural landmark—spanning an entire block—that connects an affluent downtown to the developing and long-marginalized East Village neighborhood.
