    Thank you for all of the positive feedback. Your website has unknown for architect. I was the lead design architect for this building when I was working for cdfm2 in 2003. If you have any questions about this building you may email me.

    Agree with FANTASTIC. Makes me wonder why a library would be designed any other way, now that I’ve seen it done. Thanks to all concerned with making it real.
