Main Library Design Process
The Library administration and Board of Trustees in 2004 began work with Robert A.M. Stern Architects on the renovation of the 53,000-square-foot Lakewood Public Library along with a 40,000-square-foot addition. The resulting design is at once Modern, yet Classical, extending the rich tradition of civic buildings found throughout Northeast Ohio. These candid photos provide a “fly on the wall” view of an architect at work.
The late Kenneth Warren summed up the design process in this June 2005 article in the Lakewood Observer.
