Rego Park Community Library Receives Award for Excellence in Public Design

The New York City Public Design Commission and New York City Mayor Eric Adams have awarded Rego Park Community Library with the Annual Award for Excellence in Public Design. Now in its 41st year, the Public Design Commission has been recognizing best practices in public design across the city. Rego Park Community Library is one of 21 diverse projects ranging in size, scale, and programming, selected from hundreds of submissions from across all New York City boroughs.

Weiss/Manfredi’s redesign of the Rego Park Community Library expands the 7,500 square foot existing building with a second floor level and updated brick façade. Above a monumental stair, artwork by Queens-based Icelandic artist Katrín Sigurdardóttir reveals the connection between paper and native plants.
