The Monique Corriveau Library boasts an epic architectural design, which owes itself to its former existence as a church. Complete with cathedral ceilings and a steeple, this cultural hub was once a religious one. Yet now people can worship the written word in a different way. Surprisingly clean and contemporary, the airy and bright space is the perfect place to browse for reading material, study for exams and more.
Designed by Côté Leahy Cardas Architects in collaboration with Dan Hanganu, the Monique Corriveau Library is located in Quebec, Canada. The architects worked off of the original building design, which was envisioned by fellow architect Jean-Marie Roy back in 1964. It is complete with a spiralling staircase and yellow accents.
