Calgary’s New Central Library Opened Nov 1, 2018

While we are all waiting for our revitalized Rosemount Branch and Ottawa’s new central library to take shape, let’s have a look at (and celebrate!) the new central library in Calgary which opened Nov 1, 2018.  It was designed by Snøhetta, a Norwegian firm in partnership with the Canadian firm Dialog. Snøhetta also designed the Isabel Bader Performing Arts Centre (opened 2014) in Kingston (ON), the Norwegian Opera and Ballet Centre in Oslo (opened 2008) and the Olso Deichmanske Central Library scheduled to open in 2020.
