The main entrance of the New Central library has been upraised to accommodate the railway line, whereas gently terraced slopes rise ahead and into the center of the structure, with numerous amphitheaters close into them that offer places for individuals to take a seat and for library programs to spill outside.

The entire building is wrapped during a dynamic, triple glazed façade composed of a standard, polygon pattern whose panel materiality varies to incorporate fritted glass and also the occasional iridescent Aluminum.
