A New Modernist Landmark: The Albuquerque Main Public Library (digital broadcast). An exclusive virtual tour of the Albuquerque Main Public Library, the city's newest landmark! Designed by George Clayton Pearl, FAIA, of the architectural firm Stevens, Mallory, Pearl & Campbell, the flexible library space masterfully blends regional sensibilities with modernist principles. Completed in 1975, many original design features have survived the years, including funky and futuristic 1970s furnishings and fabrics. The free, virtual tour of this modernist monument takes you behind closed doors, up dark stairways, and into time capsule spaces all the while exploring the subtle brilliance of the building's design concept.
