The 50 000 square-foot library will bring to life the city’s ambitious and forward-thinking goals for library services and anchor a broader vision for the neighbouring Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Adjaye Associates will serve as Design Architects collaborating with Executive Architects Hunton Brady Architects. Design work will begin next month.
“Winter Park’s vision for this project truly embraces the continued evolution of the library in the 21st century. With a diverse programme that recognises it as a critical piece of cultural infrastructure, this will be a dynamic space for shared education, recreation and interaction. I am thrilled to be working with the city on a design that I hope can become a true beacon for its neighbourhood, with resonance for the entire community,” said Sir David Adjaye.
