New York Public Library by Foster + Partners


UK firm Foster + Partners redesign the New York Public Library‘s landmark building. Now, the plans to integrate a circulating library into the existing structure on 42nd street have been unveiled!


“We are reasserting the library’s main axis and its very special sequence of spaces, from the main fifth avenue entrance and the astor hall, through the gottesman hall, into the dramatic volume of the new circulating library, with views through to the park. our design does not seek to alter the character of the building, which will remain unmistakably a library in its feel, in its details, materials, and lighting. it will remain a wonderful place to study. the parts that are currently inaccessible will be opened up, inviting the whole of the community— it is a strategy that reflects the principles of a free institution upon which the library was first founded.”– Norman Foster
