McAllen Main Library

McAllen, TX United States

Project Description

FROM THE AIA:

In need of a new library and understanding that the greenest building is one that already exists, the City of McAllen, Texas, decided to convert an abandoned Walmart big box store into its new main library. The primary design challenge was to create a functional, flexible library of 125,000 square feet on a single level. To meet this challenge, forms, materials, patterns, and colors create elements that organize the space, provide landmarks for visitors, and modulate the scale of spaces within the largest single-story library in the U.S.
