The recently renovated addition to the Boston Public Library Copley Square branch was designed by John Phillips. In previous posts, I executed an interior sketch from the mezzanine. In this sketch, I discovered the exterior. I did not have a good feeling about the exterior facade and yet the interior spaces are truly useful and planned very well, with all due respect. The idea of installing seating which looks out on the street is quite considerate as it is not possible to see this included in most of today’s libraries. Perhaps it is a question of location. However, the light which showers down on us from the skylight is transcendent. It should be seen. This sketch is from a picture taken from Boylston Street.
