A Visual Arts Library That\'s Out of the Box
The Other Ryan writes: \"Today\'s NYT reports that groundbreaking isn\'t for a few years (at least, with what NYC\'s libraries are going through), but, um, the design of the Brooklyn Public Library\'s new Visual Arts Library, well...yes, it\'s groundbreaking in itself.
It\'s a see-through-ship-like-thing, huge, with plans for a 24 hour multimedia center and ideas of using outdoor steps for an ampitheater, etc.
Plans that didn\'t make the cut include a tsunami, a jewelry box, and a cubist wedge.
