"Plan features new Downtown library"
I just saw this article on Madison.com from the Wisconsin State Journal. I feel like this article would be so easy to dissect in terms of what we've talked about in class. Mostly, it reminds me of the video we saw on the New York Public Library. The glass entry is like the library in Brooklyn (if I am remembering it right). However, according to the article it seems the architect created it to mirror the Overture Center. Which then made me think of the first article in the reader (the very first one that wasn't assigned to write a blog on) about the main San Fransisco library. Why would a library want to be architecturally similar to a place designed to make noise louder? Just thought I'd post it to the blog. http://www.madison.com/wsj/home/local/280832
