Designs for the New York Public Library by Norman Foster
December 30, 2012

Foster + Partners New York Public LibraryThe New York Public Library unveiled proposals for the integration of the Circulating Library into its flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd StreetLord Foster presented the plans at the launch of the public exhibition.
The project aims to safeguard the building’s legacy and precious books for future generations. The existing research library will be retained as it is today, with more space for researchers, as will many of the public spaces – the project will open twice as much of the building to the public and will restore the logic of the Neo-Classical design to improve the experience of the library’s historic halls. The two circulating collections will be housed in a spectacular light-filled new space with views of Bryant Park, previously occupied by book stacks.
The Library expects construction to begin in 2013, and to be completed in 2018, pending various approvals. All three buildings involved will remain open throughout construction.
