The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World

Ottawa's main public library doesn't rate in this collection, maybe inspiration for its eventual replacement will be found there.

Surprising to me was the Ontario Association of Architects recognizing the new Ottawa city archives and library building at 100 Tallwood, basically two linked rectangular boxes, with a design excellence award. The award to the Ottawa Convention Centre I could understand.

You can have your say until Friday by voting for one of the 15 OAA award winners as the People's Choice award. Start at http://www.oaa.on.ca/the%20oaa/awards/2012%20oaa%20peoples%20choice%20awards
