ARCHITECTURE, LANDSCAPE, AND DESIGN
The new library of the Daniels Faculty opened at One Spadina in 2017. On the first floor is a reading room and various study spaces and, on the lower floor, the stacks and a study room can be found. Visiting it, you will understand why this is an award-winning library: merging perflectly the heritage building with contemporary additions and modern concrete. "With a mix of exposed brickwork, wooden floors, tall windows, and an urban rawness to it, the library offers a bright and relaxed workspace with a view to the CN Tower" (Yursa, 2017).
Modern. Various study spots on two floors. Cafe and microwaves outside. Hidden basement study spot.
Busy weekdays. Electrical outlets are annoying to reach.
* The rating, out of 5, is subjective based on criteria such as variety of study spots, outlets, aesthetic of the space, etc.
