The New Central Library in Calgary is a technologically advanced project for innovation and research, enhancing the connection of downtown East Village with the public building. Its design is inspired by the urban culture and features a wide entrance framed by arches covered with wood.
Probably the two most unique aspects of the project are the facade and main building. Visitors will find a central area completely bathed in natural light and it will have a good perspective on all floors that shape the library. The lower floors are intended for public spaces occupied, while the upper (third and fourth) focus on quieter study areas. The facade consists of a geometric pattern that combines transparent elements, organized according to the nature of the interior spaces.
