The awards season may be winding down but some winners are here to stay for Arlington library users.
The Westover and Shirlington branch libraries have been named by an independent jury among the ten 2011 DESIGNArlington winners for excellence in architecture.
The new Westover branch opened in 2009 as part of the Reed-Westover facility run as a partnership with Arlington Public Schools. The new Shirlington branch opened in 2007 in a building that also serves as home to Signature Theatre.
DESIGNArlington recognizes and encourages design excellence in Arlington’s built environment. Distinctive architectural, public art, and landscape projects completed within the past 5 years are eligible for consideration.
