来自Steven Holl Architects的分享。

“ 抖落这座城市古老图书馆身上的尘土、抹平岁月痕迹,将它们重铸为社会公共活动中心,并提升皇后区的城市形象……对于这些持续的努力,该设计有着耀眼夺目的表现。霍尔先生的设计并非使建筑出离尘世,而是将它们变得更加诗意…景色不仅仅只是漂亮,它们提醒我们图书馆内的智慧碰撞是更大更多集合的事业的一部分。”—— 引自Nicolai Ouroussoff 文章, 纽约时报

It is a striking expression of the continuing effort to shake the dust off of the city’s aging libraries and recast them as lively communal hubs, and should go far in bolstering the civic image of Queens.... Mr. Holl’s design is not about escaping this world but transforming it into something more poetic.... The views aren’t just pretty; they remind us that the intellectual exchange of a library is part of a bigger collective enterprise. -Nicolai Ouroussoff, New York Times,

位于著名的东河基地,皇后区图书馆2.1万平方英尺的设计灵感来自曼哈顿和罗斯福岛的壮丽景致。夜晚泛着光芒的新图书馆与水边沿岸的百事可乐标志和“Long Island标志一样,成为这个新社区的一盏明灯和新标志。

Located on a prominent site along the East River, the design for the 21,000 square foot Queens Library at Hunters Point takes inspiration from the views of Manhattan and Roosevelt Island.

At night the glowing presence of the new library along the waterfront joins the Pepsi sign and the “Long Island” sign at the old Gantry to become a beacon and icon for this new community place.


This prominent building on the riverfront is not only a library; it will be the neighborhood’s primary community space, a place where students have access to computers, young families engage in educational programs, residents can learn the English language, and all can enjoy lectures and cultural events.


Large shaped openings in this aluminum facade allow users to great views toward the city as they move up a series of perimeter stairs. The program’s separation into children’s area, teen area and adult area can be read in the carved cuts of the east face of the building, one fa?ade opening for each area.

Yet the programmatic divisions are fluid. The building section of the new library is open and flowing, while the plan is compact, allowing for the most energy-efficient design and the greatest amount of public space on the site.

Program 功能Library with adult reading collection, children’s area, teen area, cybercenter, conference roomand outdoor amphitheater图书馆,包含成人阅读区,儿童区,青少区,电脑中心,会议室及户外阶梯教室
