Salt Lake City Public Library


This place is gorgeous.

I write from the main library, a five-story tall, wedge-shaped building faced top to bottom by a curved glass wall.

Outside is a huge landscaped plaza.


A rooftop garden completes the structure. It is planted with trees, grasses, flowering bulbs and various perennial plants.

The whole library depends on natural lighting, reducing the need of lights in the library. A huge five story glass wall is where most of the light comes from.

Having won Library Journal’s 2006 library of the year award I feel it’s even better than the new Vancouver Public Library.

Hey — same architect. How about that.
