The renovation of the East Flatbush Branch Library represents a key moment in the public life of this community. As the affluence of the city increases and income levels and services in neighborhoods like East Flatbush rise accordingly, but at a far lesser rate than other areas of the city, there exists an opportunity to make these key public buildings more transparent, vibrant and architecturally participatory in the life of the street. At the same time, the need for security and safety for the people who use the library remains. To address this opportunity, the design intent for the library is a light filled communal space of learning, self-improvement and community gathering. The overall design establishes a large central space with glowing smaller spaces ringing the perimeter and provides the technical and spatial needs for the branch library to flourish.
