Refining the library’s design so art *can* meet architectureSeptember 20, 2009
At the last workshop we discussed window and sill heights and the importance of carrying the tile roofing element around the south addition from a design perspective. The practical reality is that we can’t drop the windows low enough to see a top arch on the windows in that area. So we pared down from three on each end to one arched window on each side of the bowed area. Because there will be fewer arched windows, we can afford to provide more architectural detail on the ones that remain. During the workshop, Del Wilson (of Uihlein-Wilson Architects) described the importance of art meeting architecture…and we found a way to do that.
If you’d like to see the updated interior plans you can do that at our library’s website here. We also have them on display at the library. The changes continue to evolve as a result of important input from many. Thank you to all who have had a hand in recommending, revising, refining…helping us write our library’s story.
