The Kirkwood Public Library in New Castle, Delaware, breaks away from the traditional mold of library buildings. Designed by the Princeton, NJ–based Ikon.5 Architects, the structure has enhanced its commercial surroundings with an eye-catching facade made up of a series of horizontal cement boards—a symbolic abstraction of a stack of books.
