Latse Contemporary Tibetan Cultural Library

LATSE CONTEMPORARY TIBETAN CULTURAL LIBRARY, NEW YORK, NY

Architect – Murphy Burnham & Buttrick

Two floors of a renovated West Village loft building were designed to showcase and store collections of Tibetan texts, prints, games, multimedia and other research materials. The quiet light of traditional Tibetan libraries and prayer halls is evoked using a mixture of sources to wash and sculpt the warmly hued materials and brightly colored displays throughout.
