Angled strips of glass and aluminum fan out along the facade of Vaughan’s new Civic Centre Resource Library like the pages of a book. ZAS Architects designed the branch’s sweeping roofline as a nod to the roller coaster tracks at Canada’s Wonderland nearby – a fitting reminder that 21st-century libraries aren’t just for stuffy lit anymore. Inside, the two-storey facility is tricked out with a café, a teen lounge and maker spaces that include all the latest 3-D printer and media production suite tech. zasa.com
