The Roxbury Branch Library, part of the Boston Public Library System and designed by Utile has been awarded a prestigious AIA/ALA Library Building Award. Every year the American Institute of Architects partners with the American Library Association /Library Leadership and Management Association to honor the best in library architecture and design. "No longer a drab and imposing bunker, the Roxbury Branch fully engages the community it serves. The new library's transparency, warmth, and accessibility now reveal the vibrancy that always existed inside the previous facility, from its lively chess scene to the regular concerts held in its community room."
