Weldon Library’s stunning new look earned accolades from designers around the world after the first phase of a massive revitalization. 

Interior Design Magazine named the space “Best of Year” in the library category, an honour that placed Western ahead of public libraries in New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The International Interior Design Association awarded Weldon a Global Excellence Award and the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario highlighted it as one of the most vibrant, innovative and inspiring educational spaces in the province.

The transformation at Weldon, a partnership with architects Perkins & Will, is an effort to re-imagine a Western landmark for the 21st century, balancing its original brutalist design with new modern elements.
