Library Construction Oak Brook IL

The library’s design is geometrically unique in that it is circular in plan with a serpentine perimeter hexagonal in geometry. Due to the uniqueness of the design, the building has a sun-screen required to reduce the solar loads, which cantilevers out from the perimeter wall. The construction of the facility’s exterior features horizontal lapped cedar combined with aluminum and glass. The main feature of the library is its fabricated steel frame dome ceiling.
