Vancouver Public Library

Looking from the corner of Homer and Robson, this is the view of the main entrance of the Vancouver central library. The building, completed in 1995, was designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie after a referendum and a design competition. According to Wikipedia, it was the largest capital project approved by the City of Vancouver at the time, costing more than 106 million dollars. The curved surfaces and colonnade make it one of the most unique public buildings in Canada. The Library Square project incorporates an office tower, coffee shops and a glass-ceiling galleria. It's a warm and inviting public space, especially on rainy days.
