Library of the Day: Cleveland Heights Lee Road Branch, Reinvented by Studio Techne

I've used the Cleveland Heights library on Lee Road since the 1970s, and can say with confidence the recent Studio Techne reinvention of this facility transformed the space, site, and surrounding neighborhood for the better. Featuring a dramatic, high-art bridge over Lee Road, and two reused buildings - one signficantly modernized - with crisp, fitting site improvements, this is one of the best library facilities and urban redevelopments in Northeast Ohio.

 

Buildings Matter

Thanks Norm for reminding us that we still need buildings to house our ideas and provide community access to information. 

Libraries in Ohio are mandated to bridge the Digital Divide.  Well-designed buildings help all of to elevate civil society and civil discourse.
