location Washington, Maple Valley
function library
contributed by Arkitekt

In 2002 the Maple Valley Library was one of only 18 projects in the US to win an AIA Honor Award. It is credited with preserving 90 percent of the trees on the site by nestling the parking in between the existing forest and some clever planning. The building is pulled back away from the adjacent road and hidden within the forest. Large open corners enhance views through a grid of windows and blur the relationship of inside and outside spaces. The building also implements a sculptural pool to collect rainwater in the central courtyard.
