As the world enters 2022, public libraries are emerging as one of the bright spots — literally.
An abundance of new and newly renovated libraries have opened their doors in the past two years. In addition to being breathtakingly beautiful, many are exemplars of what great community spaces can and should be.
Libraries play a critical role in supporting communities. Lord Cultural Resources has played an integral role in the evolution of cultural institutions for forty years and is at the forefront of planning for libraries. We have developed expertise in planning for libraries throughout the world and bring sensitivity towards the unique character of each project. Some of our library projects include:
- Miami-Dade Public Library
- Hoover Institution Library & Archives
- Library and Archives Canada
- Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
- King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture
