Cleveland Public Library
Martin Luther King, Jr. Branch

In contrast to the historical library as a dense protector of books, the new MLK Library is envisioned as lightweight and delicate, lifting up to allow the space of the street plaza to slide into the library, effectively blurring the boundary between library and ‘city’ while also symbolically reflecting Cleveland Public Library’s commitment to the notion of connection to the community and truly spearheading the “People’s University."
