State Library of Queensland

November 8, 2009

Another visit to a cool spot in Brisbane’s Cultural Centre, this time the State Library of Queensland.
Once again, i’m amazed by how great spaces are built and designed for the community to join and share the same space but having so much freedom and power to learn, explore, create, and feel inspired.
There is a place called the “Red Room” where I don’t know how you are supossed to concentrate having such a breathtaking 180° view from the CBD around you.

On 25 October 2007 the State Library building was voted Australia’s ‘Building of the Year’ at the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) Awards ceremony with accolades going to architects Donovan Hill Peddle Thorp.

“The State Library is culturally and climatically a Queenslander – partly grand library and part community hall with its interiors opening like the chapters of a good book”
