Design Approach: To incorporate the use of aggressive shapes and forms to reflect the explosive energy of the adjacent sports complex. A series of forms emerge from and radiate around a central point. This vocabulary of fractured geometry allows dramatic valley views of Reno and the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range from all major reading spaces within the library.
