Docklands library at 'heart of buzzing town centre' (UK)

Docklands library at 'heart of buzzing town centre' (UK)"Plans for a GBP14m library that will dominate a new civic plaza in London's docklands have been unveiled by Southwark Council. Shaped like an inverted pyramid the striking structure will overhang the Canada Water basin. Designed by Piers Gough the four-storey building also has an atrium, with a timber-lined central spiral staircase, and will have a grass roof and a ground source heat pump. The library will sit at the edge of a new town centre open space that will be designed to provide facilities for a farmer's market, large TV screenings and festivals"
