Atlanta Fulton County Central Library
The Marcel Breuer-designed Atlanta Fulton County Central Library serves as the central headquarters of a combined city-county library system, occupying an entire urban block within downtown Atlanta. The reinforced concrete building displays a degree of structural sophistication and innovation common to work throughout Breuer’s career. Both the scale and flexibility of the building layout are attributed to a steel structural system which provides the 30’ by 45’ primary column bays. It is notable not only as one of the most significant projects of architect Marcel Breuer’s late career, but also as an evolution in his twenty-year exploration of the library building typology, during which he produced designs for six library projects.
