Chicago Public Library Commissioner Brian Bannon to moderate talk on Public Library Design.
“Composition, Contrast, Complexity” is a perfect summary of the rich sensory journey visitors experience in a space designed by Mecanoo Architects. It’s also the title of founding partner Francine Houben’s book about the Dutch firm. Join Houben as she reflects on her 30-year international career, her design inspirations and several current Mecanoo commissions—including the renovation of the iconic New York Public Library’s flagship location.
