Preliminary designs have been released by three shortlisted teams competing to renovate Mies van der Rohe’s historic Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Washington D.C. - the only library and D.C. building ever designed by the legendary architect. Preview each proposal and learn how you can submit your feedback to the D.C. Public Library before they make their decision, after the break.
Team 1: Mecanoo with Martinez + Johnson Architecture
Team 2: Patkau Architects with Ayers Saint Gross
Team 3: STUDIOS Architecture with The Freelon Group
Each team will present their ideas to the public for the last time this Saturday, February 15 at 10am in the MLK Library’s Great Hall. An eight-member committee will evaluate the three proposals with input from an Advisory Panel, as well as input from the community, before making a decision.
If you are unable to attend the public review, submit your feedback here.
