Finally got to enjoy Calgary's new library. It's a gorgeous addition to our city! #yyc #calgarycentrallibrary #architecture #beautiful #publicart
A couple weeks ago we de-installed "Concept Collection: Imprints" at Calgary Central Library. Showcasing the making of the building through the design team’s study models, concept sketches, and drawings, the exhibition offered an opportunity for us to revisit key moments in the design process. From our retrospective mode, we wanted to share here a selection of these studies. Swipe thru ➡️ 1) A wood study model captures early approaches to the arched entryway, the shape of which was inspired by the phenomena of the chinook arch cloud formations seen often in the Calgary area. 2) A series of massing studies of how the library might bridge over the path of the C-train that curves through the site. 3) Acrylic concept model that started to get at the idea of the main central atrium at the heart of the building, and 4) the library today, shot by @michaelgrimmphoto #calgarycentrallibrary #tbt
She calls me up to come to the library. I say, "I'm at the gym and not dressed 'nice' if you wanna shoot me". She says, "its aight". So here I am in my awesome yoga tights and sweatshirt pretending to read . . . I'm not a good dresser, and some times I've been told that I dress like a "mom" hahahahaha😂 I agree. I like comfort & whatever outfit gets me outta the door fast over "fashion". That's why I got a sis whom I look up to for fashion advise when I want to look nice🙌 Fashion just isn't my strongest suit 🤷‍♀️ . . . 📸 @jtsnapsxx #yogapants #calgarycentrallibrary

This evening I got to spend time in the coolest library I've ever seen. Seriously, Calgary's Central Library should be the number 1 attraction on the city's trip advisor page! They had art installations as well as interactive displays about the history and future of Calgary. There was a cafe and the friendliest security guard at the door. I spent a while journaling on staircase seating, listening to the CTrain go by. I was disappointed in one thing though, the measly Stephen King selection (honestly the Thomas King selection was even worse-maybe it's just checked out), but this library can't have everything, it just wouldnt be fair to the others! :P #calgary #calgarycentrallibrary #publiclibrary #library #modern #urban #publicservices #books #architecture #modernarchitecture #stephenking #nofilter

Reading is better with a good light. The inspiring atrium skylight of the magnificent Calgary Central Library lets in maximum light, and not a flake of the snow deposited above it. . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #yycnow #urbacalgary #libraryarchitecture #dailyhiveyyc

Fun house. Erecting a bricks and mortar (or in this case, woods and windows) library sure ain’t like the old days. These kids are playing in what looks like an aquarium; the parents are likely playing online around the corner. . . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #dailyhiveyyc #yycnow #libraryarchitecture #urbacalgary

Tunnel vision. The beautiful new central library is an architectural gem for many reasons, one of which is that its north end juts out over the entrance to a train tunnel. . . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #yycnow #dailyhiveyyc #calgaryisbeautiful
Grand organic entrance. This notable addition to #calgary architecture makes great use of wood and stone to form a curvy cave of an entrance. . . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #yycnow #dailyhiveyyc #calgaryisbeautiful
Tear drop skylight. The spectacular atrium and stairwells of the beautiful new library are dominated by this heavenly roof. With wood making up most surfaces, the natural light from above and the sides makes for a fascinating space. . . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #atrium #woodwork #dailyviewcalgary #yycnow #dailyhiveyyc #calgaryisbeautiful
Eye catching wall treatment at central library. Amidst the wood, white and natural light of the new library, this wall just stands out. . . . . . . . . . . . #calgarycentrallibrary #calgary

Pit stop: Calgary, Alberta - 51.0486° N, 114.0708° W 🇨🇦 . The New Central Library was designed and constructed over the course of three years and opened in November 2018. Four floors with meeting spaces, activity centres, conference rooms, reading rooms, over 450,000 titles, small theatre and a café. It's a great place to hide away from the cold weather (FYI: it's -29*C) 🌨😓 . Recommendations on any good books? . . . @travelalberta @tourismcalgary @canada #letsgo #explore #exploremore #wanderlust #travel #travelblogger #travelsomewhere #travelmore #passportready #passionpassport #ilovetravel #suitcasetravel #roamtheplanet #photooftheday #aroundtheworld #architecture #libraries #ilovebooks #canada #calgary #403 #calgarycentrallibrary #explorealberta #nesw
