Building of the Day

Kew Gardens Hills Library

Oct 21 at 11am–12pm
72-33 Vleigh Place, Flushing, NY 11367

Architect: WORKac

This new library is designed to be a source of pride for the community. A perimeter of open rooms for adults, teens, children and staff wraps a core of stacks and is capped with a green roof. The facade is a literal “lif ting up” of the exterior walls to broadcast activities to the outside. The apex and most public corner is the main reading room, while a second “mini peak” creates the children’s room.
