The New York Public Library has unveiled the designs for its $300 million renovation by the British architect Norman Foster and his firm Foster + Partners. The NYTimes reports that the plans propose opening up more of the building to the public, which was previously occupied by seven floors of stacks, into a large atrium with bookshelves, seating areas and desks. Tall windows on the ground floor will let in light from Bryant Park and allow visitors to enjoy the view.
