Building of the Day: Greenpoint, Van Cortlandt, and East Elmhurst Libraries


Center for Architecture

Monday, Oct. 5
2:00pm – 3:00pm


East Elmhurst Branch Library: Garrison Architects

Van Cortlandt Branch Library: Andrew Berman Architect

Greenpoint Branch Library: Marble Fairbanks

This event is part of Archtober's virtual Building of the Day program series. Join us for a virtual tour of Greenpoint, Van Cortlandt, and East Elmhurst Libraries.

At this Building of the Day, we'll virtually visit three libraries across the city's three systems: Van Cortlandt Branch Library (New York Public Library), East Elmhurst Library (Queens Public Library), and Greenpoint Library (Brooklyn Public Library). During this program, we'll hear from the architects of each project as well as representatives from the respective library systems about the process of designing a library for these communities. The panel will also discuss how the library systems have responded to COVID-19 in different ways, and how design plays a role in this transition.
