AR Library Winner: ‘the architects have preserved open public space for future generations while simultaneously de-institutionalising the library as type. There is none of the look-at-me showboating that often stands in for civic pride. It is the opposite of an edifice’ 🏆 👏 our review of Green Square Library and Plaza by @stewarthollenstein in association with @stewartarchitecture is featured in the AR Book issue, out soon – follow the link in our bio to get your copy! 👆 Photograph by @julienlanoo#library #architecture #building #book #books #award #ARlibrary #ARlibraryawards #winner #firstplace #square #circle #plaza #public #townsquare #sydney #australia #stewarthollenstein #julienlanoo
