In honor of MLK Day, on Monday we highlighted again the excellent Refeatured Project: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (MLKL). Washington DC’s Central Library, the MLKL was opened in 1972 and President Ronald Reagan signed the federal holiday into law in 1983. The library renovation opened to the public in September 2021, and this hidden yet public oasis offers everyone tranquility, proximity to nature and an open sky.
In its final week, the Emilio Ambasz event Emerging Ecologies at the MoMa in NYC ends tomorrow 1/20 – if you’re in New York, you should go! Watch the latest Video: Trailblazer of sustainable architecture | BUILT ECOLOGIES: ARCHITECTURE AND ENVIRONMENT by MoMa.
