New Queens Library Design Threatens to Make Reading Cool

New, 8 comments

Libraries: They're not just empty buildings for homeless people to masterbate inside. They're also outlets for interesting architecture in times when development is largely frozen. Check out the 3,000-square-foot addition to the Kew Gardens Hills Library designed by Work AC, a firm known for far-out designs. There's a planted green roof and a zig-zag facade made, the Archpaper explains, of textured glass fiber-reinforced concrete panels, which we think you can buy in bulk from a guy on Canal Street.
