Project Description

Opened in December 2014, the stunning Halifax Central Library in Nova Scotia, Canada, is the hub of the city’s library system. CNN ranked it as one of the world’s top 10 eye-popping new buildings of 2014. Structural and civil engineers found novel and sustainable solutions to successfully deliver the building’s complex, cantilever geometry. This vital centre for learning and culture blends the best of traditional library services with innovative spaces and the latest technology.
