- Program Description
Design competition between major architecture firms to build a new Chicago Public Library. Five architects compete for the approval of architecture-obsessed Chicagoans in the contest to build the city's new public library. NOVA looks at the strengths and weakness of each of the surprisingly varied entries, and how they each solved the architectural challenges posed by the site, usage and budget constraints of the project.
