Toronto Public Library
Perkins + Will Canada
Designed by Perkins + Will, the new Albion Library provides a broad range of services for a diverse demographic in one of Toronto’s Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. The project involved construction of the new library on the adjacent, under-utilized parking lot which allowed the existing facility to remain open throughout construction.
After completion of the new library building, Aquicon’s team demolished the existing library and a multipurpose urban plaza supporting community event space, markets and parking was created in its place.
The new building includes a 50% green roof, state-of-the-art exposed timber design, exterior finish comprised of unique terracotta panel colours and a stunning multicoloured curtain wall to cover the building.
