This one-of-a-kind subterranean library is crowned by an elliptical glass dome that extends above grade approximately 35 feet and utilizes no interior support columns. The dome covers the Grand Reading Room and sits atop an elliptical concrete foundation that extends several stories below grade. The dome design is comprised of a specialized glazing system intended to provide natural light while reducing solar heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter.
