Add To Bookmarks: 8 Product Picks Inspired By This Desert Library


Richard Kennedy Architects looked to the surrounding Arizona landscape to inform the design of the Scottsdale Public Library’s Arabian branch, resulting in a LEED-certified structure that appears as if it was excavated from the Earth. Terra-cotta walls, a stone roof and intersections of steel and glass create the feeling of being immersed in a canyon. Inside the central courtyard, light pours into the building’s angled windows, casting a bronze glow and dispersing dramatic shadows throughout. Here, we round up products that channel the sleek lines and fiery colors of the desert bibliotheca.
