Great alvaraalto 2020-07-10 8:02

Hello Brenda,
Beautiful photo of the main entrance to this majestic library.
I remember that the building will undergo a thorough renovation designed by the Dutch architect Francine Houben of the architectural firm Mecanoo in collaboration with local practice Beyer Blinder Belle.
Do you know if this renovation has been delayed by the current turbulent situation in NY? It should be completed in 2021.
Have a good weekend. Be careful and stay safe, Rob

Default To alvaraalto: Renovations

Hello Rob,

The renovations in this particular building started, but I don't know if they have finished yet. I know different parts of the library have been closed for long stretches of time during the past couple of years. Another library building, one block away, was also supposed to have major renovations done, but I don't think those have started yet.

Take good care!
