Langston Hughes Library
A new library and gift shop were built into an existing cantilevered barn structure, maintaining the integrity of the existing structure while slipping an inner skin inside.
Lighting emphasizes the reflective atmosphere of the library by architect Maya Lin. Diffuse light and lights embedded inside of the walls create shadow, further accentuated with warm light.
