A dynamic urban library should expand and evolve with the community, operating as container and distributor. For young people it acts as a point of departure where the world beyond can be revealed. This children's reading room is designed to stimulate its users' imaginations, encouraging them to learn through form, color and layout. Tour led by architect David Piscuskas of 1100 Architects.
