Chicago Public Library Chinatown Branch
This new library serves as a civic, educational, and social hub for Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood, providing a vibrant gathering place driven by technology-based learning. Amenities in this 16,000 square foot, $16 million, two-story building include enhanced collections spaces, technological upgrades, dedicated areas for children and teens, a community room, and on-site parking.
Daylight and electric light fill the atrium and highlight the dynamic mural, “Visual Riot” by Chicago-based artist Christopher Hungerman. The all-LED lighting system is efficient, sustainable, and designed to complement an open socially responsive and responsible architectural environment.
