DISQUIET IN THE LIBRARY

ASTRAGAL

'It's a very good building, ' said Piers Gough about Bennetts Associates and Lomax Cassidy & Edwards' Jubilee Library in Brighton during last year's Stirling Prize judging. 'I think the circulation is very well planned, ' added fellow judge Joan Bakewell. 'It's a very elegant box, ' chipped in Jack Pringle. 'But there aren't enough books!' cry out the librarians, dismayed at their pitiful collection. That's the trouble with library staff; they are far too concerned with the details.
