Good to see some unique architecture being built in Virginia Beach. I would love to see things like this happening in the Pembroke area as well.

Very cool! I love the design. It's a little bit bigger than the Trible Library at CNU, and I have to admit I have a bit of a soft spot for the modern design :) And I agree with urbanlife -- I always envisioned a sort of 'landmark' library building in the VBTC area -- something like the massive Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, but on a bit of a more VB appropriate scale.

An awesome start, nevertheless :)
