Winter Park City Commissioners will have an opportunity to give their stamp of approval on the conceptual design for the new library/civic center during their Monday, Nov. 13 meeting.
The City Commission and Winter Park residents had the chance to see renderings for the first time at a public presentation at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic Center on Wednesday, Nov. 1.
A series of renderings showcased the new facility in three separate structures: a drop-off pavilion, a library and a civic center.
The three structures, which are slated for the northwest corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Park, would be clustered together in a unified “village” layout in close proximity to the lake within the park.
Conceptual designs depict the buildings with large archway windows that stretch across all four sides of each building, framing views of the park, the city and between the buildings.
“The windows create a dialogue,” Adjaye said during the presentation. “They’re not opaque. They’re transparent to each other. They’re two communities that see each other.”
The library project will move forward if the design is approved at today’s meeting.
