New Carnegie Library Images Reveal Toned Down Glass Pavilion


The plans for the Carnegie Library additions have become significantly less intense. The International Spy Museum announced from their plans to move from their home on 800 F Street into the Mt. Vernon Square library about a year ago, but the new large glass additions didn't fly with the Historic Preservation Review Board. These new images show a decidedly toned down take on the pavilions that will house the Spy Museum's gift shop and a D.C. visitor center. The back of the library isn't blocked in any way (which had been a previous complaint of the HPRB) and the ceilings of the wings don't appear to fan out the way they had previously. Take a look at the rest of the new renderings after the jump.
