Project includes a library and events centre

Adjaye Associates’ latest public building, the Winter Park Library and Events Centre in Florida, has opened.

The $42m (£32m) project, a public-private partnership with the City of Winter Park, consists of three separate pavilions located within Martin Luther King Jr Park.

It combines a two-storey library, an events centre with a rooftop terrace and entrance portico, with all three clad in a rose-coloured concrete.

It replaces a former library and civic centre buildings, providing a 30% youth collection and 50% more meeting space.

The library opened to the public on Monday this week, while the events centre is scheduled to open on 3 January.

Other civic projects completed by Adjaye in the States include the Ruby City art centre in Texas, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC, and the Princeton University Art Museum in New Jersey.
