The Bigger Picture: In Addition
The University of Virginia’s main library is getting a new addition – seen here from McCormick Road – along with renovations to the original building. The new addition will be a robust concrete building able to hold compact shelving all the way through the fourth floor, allowing for expansion of the library’s collection.
These columns for the third floor still have their formwork wrap, which will be removed in a few days, leaving the solidified columns, like the ones on level two. In this view, level one and the ground floor are below grade.
