Queens Library at Hunters Point
Design: Steven Holl Architects
New Queens Library Building
Steven Holl Architects has been selected to design the new library at the Queens West Development at Hunters Point. This new library will provide state-of-the-art library services to the community, as well as offer a space for community programming.
The new Queens Library is sited with spectacular views over the East River and major landmarks, such as the UN Building and the Roosevelt Memorial by Louis I. Kahn under construction on Roosevelt Island. It will function as a connector between waterfront activities and the city beyond. With residential buildings, three acres of new park land and public schools as neighbors, the library will serve as a new “urban forum” and an invaluable resource for the community. The new Library will shape public space and create new connections across the Queens West Development, Hunter Points South, and the existing neighborhood of Hunters Point.
