Charrette Designs on Display

Designs submitted to the charrette sponsored by Archinect were presented to the library board at the February 26 meeting by two young architects. The design boards were displayed at the Ewald Branch on Thursday evening, March 1, and are currently on display on the windows of the main reading room at the Central Library. Participants promote saving the 1953 building designed by Marcel Breuer, and the designs represent a wide selection of approaches to add to the building while maintaining the original structure.
