Oak Forest High School Instructional Media Center
Oak Forest, Illinois
Well-integrated into the original high school building, this library addition creates a completely new image for the 30-year old facility. The addition houses 15,000 volumes, two dozen computer workstations, a conference room, media center, and offices. During the day, the liberal use of glass in this facade floods the main study area with ample day light. Seen at night, with the sweeping curve of the glass facade and tubular aluminum canopy, the glowing addition serves as a beacon to the neighboring area.
