FJMT Distinguishes Craigieburn Library with a Louvered Appearance

The architecture firm FJMT has built the Craigieburn Library with a distinguished appearance defined by the use of louvers. The library is located in Australia, and also uses material from the earth, making it an eco-conscious design.

The library actually won an award in 2014 for being a locally sourced and open design, making it accessible for a number of different people. According to DesignBoom, "the building is conceived as a composition of interlocking rectangular pavilions of varying heights and sizes," and this is what helps give it such a distinct look and feel. It also blends in well with the landscape, taking on a brown coloring that matches the dry landscape of this spot near Melbourne in Australia. The louvers will also allow people to enjoy the outdoors without becoming too hot.
