Curves at the Central Public Library

Calgary’s new Central Public Library is an amazing space for many reasons. Last night I enjoyed circling the exterior for the first time, photographing interesting features at interesting moments as I went.

Above a patron standing at the stairs near the main entrance is silhouetted against the beautifully designed curving wall that leads to the doors.  A minute later, and a few steps to the north, a fellow photographer captured the curve in his own way while sitting outside.

  2. Calgary Library is the star these days, showing off the designs from the combined minds of two firms Snøhetta from US and DIALOG from Calgary. I went to the site and saw the inside entrance. Nice captures, Christopher, of a beautiful building. I am sure it will be one of the most photographed buildings in the city for some time. I await the unveiling of our newly renovated library in Edmonton in 2020, hopefully fully accessible for disabled peoples.

    Did Doug Cardinal design the library? He’s an Albertan famous for his curvilinear designs. …….P. G.
