This proposal is for an extension to the existing
library that is actually across the street, and was
to be joined via an underground tunnel.
The formation takes advantage of the set-back
apartment building's garden. The cylindrical
volume contains a periodicals reading room
on the ground floor and two of four departments
on the upper two levels. Internally, the library is
organized around a central atrium.
