CZWG puts £10 million library before planners - images

  • Comment
Piers Gough's practice CZWG is submitting this £10 million Canada Water library scheme to planners, having already received outline planning permission for a masterplan for the east London area.

The library takes the form of a huge trapezoid, and is the cornerstone of the area's regeneration, which is being driven by British Land and Canada Quays Limited.

In addition to state-of-the-art computer, internet and lending facilities, the library - which will be clad in light bronze anodised aluminium - will include a café and a 'performance space'.

In a statement, CZWG said the 'overall dramatic image of the building suggests the excitement and grandeur of the learning available to an individual within.'

If it wins permission, construction is expected to complete in 2009.
