ON THE COVER: ARCHITECTURAL RECORD, "STEVEN HOLL'S QUEENS LIBRARY: THE LITTLE LIBRARY THAT COULD"November 13, 2019
The Hunters Point Library is on the cover of the November issue of Architectural Record - "Steven Holl's Queens Library: The Little Library That Could."
"After a difficult gestation, Steven Holl Architects' building makes a grand entrance on the NYC waterfront. ... The enigmatic calligraphic window openings etched across the Hunters Point Library command attention, drawing the eye from Manhattan across New York's East River to a waterfront site in the borough of Queens. Dwarfed by bland residential towers that march in heedless lockstep along the riverfront, this diminutive 82-foot-high structure, deisnged by Steven Holl Architects (SHA), "represents civic life for the whole community," says senior partner Chris McVoy."
