Riverside Main Library

Riverside, California, USA

The two-story Riverside Main Library sits up 36 feet on massive concrete piers, creating an 8,900-square-foot shaded outdoor public plaza for hosting various community events. The library is housed on 2.5 acres and is within walking distance of the city’s cultural and business district. Kawneer’s 1600 Wall System®1 Curtain Wall System and EnCORE® Framing System were used to construct this project.
