{SummaryTitle}

The Bloor-Gladstone Library located in downtown Toronto and created by RDH Architects has an all glass exterior to evoke a contemporary and clean aesthetic. The mandate that RDH Architects received for the Bloor-Gladstone Library project was to use an existing structure in their design, but also to create a something completely new as an addition.

The clean and refined look of the all glass building that the architects designed from scratch stands in contrast to the red brick existing structure that they renovated; the contrast highlights the institutions link to the past and its vision of the future.

The Bloor-Gladstone library is a beautiful piece of contemporary architecture that strikes utilizes a clean minimal design and juxtaposes it against the brick building of the past.
