Poets House at Battery Park City
Battery Park City, New York
Former United States Poet Laureate and founder of Poets House once wrote, “I dream of an art so transparent that you can look through it and see the world.” The LEED Gold home for Poets House, a 70,000 volume library in Battery Park City, speaks to its founder for its physical transparency beckons all people and voices of poetry to come inside. Such elements as the double height glass entry incorporating an oval glass exhibition space, the children’s library and the indoor/outdoor auditorium, with its operable glass wall that opens directly to the adjacent park, serve as a beacon to invite the community to enter.
