Description
Steven Holl's Hunter's Point library brings community-devoted space to New York's increasingly privatized Long Island City waterfrontSituated along the banks of the East River in Long Island City, New York's Hunter's Point Community Library is the result of a seven-year effort by Steven Holl Architects. Nearing completion as of 2017, the library will bring community-devoted space to the increasingly privatized Long Island City waterfront. Library, a Social Condenser traces the history of the library's development and the uncompromising fight to keep the realized structure true to its original conception--that of a social catalyst in the midst of dense, high-rise structures.Through the collective commentary of individuals involved in or influenced by the project, the book provides insight into an individual and collective fight for the common good; at the same time demonstrating for multiple audiences what can be accomplished when excellence in design and the commitment and persistence of government officials and community leaders combine to protect and enhance public space.
