Carnegie Library of Braddock

Is a sad place sometimes.
The city of Braddock used to be a booming steel town that has since seen an incredibly sharp decline. The library was built during the boom by the steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie and like the city, the library has seen better days. I worked this last semester with the library to do some efficiency improvements for the building itself.

Some pictures from when I had a camera with me.

  1. Such a shame. And it has such a bookish earthy feel that has little corners and soft lighting and airy ceilings :D.
    I hate libraries that look so hi techy and plastic. I do hope this one survives.
