2012 Final Public Meeting

November 14, 2012

Our presentation of the final design used all of the visual tools we could think to share. We wanted community members to see clearly what we were creating together.

  • Watch the 3D Virtual Tour
    With the design complete, community members were invited on a 3D virtual tour of their new Library. You enter from Spring Garden Road and fly through the Library, floor by floor. A commentator points to notable details of the spaces and the interior design features. ~3 min
  • Initial Floor Plans
    Every detail was on display as the architects shared their plans for each floor of Halifax Central Library.
  • Flip Through Each Floor (13mb pdf)
    The presentations were made available online. Community members were invited to go at their own pace as they flipped through architect Morten Schmidt's presentation.
  • In My Life I've Learned...
    For one month, the Halifax Central Library construction site featured chalk boards along the fence, and people shared their life's lessons. Here is a sample of what they said.
  • Construction at Top Speed
    Anyone could see what was happening during construction. At the end, we wanted to share the quick progression of Halifax Central Library's construction and put together a time lapse video documenting the creation of every wall and floor.
  • Early Sketches & Modeling
    The process of design, from concept to plan, was caught on video, too. One of the architects made the video as a way to share the early illustrations of Halifax Central Library.
