Library Square

The relationship between public space and buildings is of great importance and often neglected. The re-design of Library Square has managed to combine traffic and pedestrian use, resurfacing and new street furniture to the great benefit of this part of York and the Library building. [The simplicity of the design, the sensitivity of the detailing and the quality of the design of the new elements provide a major improvement to a public area and a public building seamlessly and quietly.  This is an exemplary scheme.]
