Inside the Ingleside Branch Library, Complete With Egg-Shaped Room

New, 2 comments

The Ingleside Branch Library has recently found a permanent home after bouncing between rented spaces since 1917. The building, designed by Fougeron Architecture, won a competition held by the San Francisco Public Library in 2002, and opened in September. Arch Daily's just posted gallery showcases the building's two main features: an egg-shaped reading room, and a high canopy roof that shields the building from too much heat and also doubles as a good platform for future solar panels. The courtyard's located next to the site of a future playground for "greater aggregate outdoor space."
