Completed in 2006, the downtown branch of the Minneapolis Public Library is part of the collection of modern architecture superstars in Minneapolis. Designed by César Pelli and the Architectural Alliance of Minneapolis, the library boasts an abundance of natural daylight, a 5-story tall atrium as you enter, a rooftop garden, and a protuberance that I can only assume is intended to elicit thoughts of suicide or flight.
