Recap: “A Green New Library for Brooklyn”

We are glad so many of you were able to join us this past Friday for our first virtual “Breakfast Talk” of the new academic year at CityTech. We’d especially like to thank our panelists: Acacia Thompson and Ames O’Neill, from the Brooklyn Public Library, and Jason Roberts from Marble Fairbanks:

As a follow up, we now have a recording of the event up on youtube and more information shared below.


Check out the Greenpoint Library’s website or facebook page for upcoming events and opportunities!

The website also has more information about the green features of the building here and a section of digital resources, which includes the Greenpoint remediation reports

As mentioned, you can also take the Greenpoint Repair Shop Survey to provide input on future repair-related programming and potential borrowable tools!

Learn more about the project architectural firm, Marble Fairbanks, and the landscape designers they collaborated with, SCAPE Studio. See an overview of the project on Architectural Record and an in-depth interview with Jason and Acacia in the Urban Omnibus here.
