This is one beautiful library! Whistler Public Library
Respect for the surrounding landscape, the natural environment and the needs of the community (it has showers for bicycle and cross country ski commuters) has produced a stunning and ecologically efficient library design.
Although I have not experienced the library myself, it looks like one that I would want to be in and appreciate - right up to it's grassed roof.
