Library Architecture: “Reinventing the Modern Library as a Tech-Forward, Eco-Friendly, Community Hub”

From a article by Kristin Hohenadel:

The AIA/ALA Library Building Awards—a collaboration between the American Institute of Architects and the American Library Association—began recognizing excellence in library design in 1963. This year’s six winners, announced earlier this month, represent a range of builds and renovations of existing structures that respond to the individual needs of communities but share the same kind of next-generation design that hopefully will keep libraries at the heart of communities for years to come.

The complete article contains images of each award winning library along with a brief text blurb.
