An incredibly green building built without LEED requirements. This building proves that both modernism and sustainable design are affordable and approachable.



 

 

See the recent article regarding opening day at

The library has many opportunities to explore and learn about sustainable design including a periscope to see the 18000 sf green roof. An innovative installation of photovoltaic glazing and individual meters in a curved window wall allow patrons to study the effects of panel relationship to the sun. Simple low production energy approach to the custom furniture both inside and outside the building. MOre about these later as we are entering the market with this environmentally conscious approach.
