Re: “Amidst gloomy news about libraries, the North Side's new Carnegie Library is a bright spot.

The neighborhood process had a significant impact on this design. The original L & K concept exaggerated the horizontal aspects of the building and the site, completely out of context with the vertical rectangles that mark the surrounding historic buidings. Community asked that the facade convey a greater verticality in keeping with the rhythm of the existing built environment. While most certainly a contemporary structure, the revised design does "harmonize subtly" with its surroundings. Community input helped take this from discordance to harmony.
