William O. Lockridge/Bellevue Library in Washington Highlands

Libraries, a review of two new libraries by David Adjaye, by Gwen Webber (the U.S. correspondent for Blueprint and a frequent contributor to AN). Ms. Webber argues that libraries are a “vital piece of community infrastructure” and perhaps these two new buildings located in Ward 8 are a step towards developing a greater “social architecture” as they have begun to do in Medellín for instance.
