To longtime Madison residents, the Central Library is no longer recognizable. That’s a good thing; the building ditched its deep setback and tiny windows for large picture panes and a street-edge presence. A 25,000-square-foot addition, not to mention a new green roof, tops the original 95,000-square-foot building, and a new glass atrium makes activity visible from both inside and out. Putting a spin on sustainable design, the LEED Gold library offers a makers’ lab that supports hands-on, tech-based tinkering and production. These bright spaces are equipped with everything from cutting-edge digital tools to screen-printing stations and programmed with DIY educational sessions taught by local artists and creatives.
