Description
The new City of Perth Library.
The round seven level building, designed by Kerry Hill Architects, includes a perimeter stair winding around the outside of the building, a large video wall, café, outdoor terrace and gaming area, outdoor story space for children, views of a green wall and outdoor reflection pond. On level one an elegant and reserved reading room forms the centre point of the building. From this vantage point visitors will be able to view the artwork on the ceiling three stories above. The Andrew Nichol’s drawing combines the story of The Tempest with colonial and natural themes that feature West Australian flora and fauna.
