Ridiculous, isn't it. A classic case of money-shifting and deep pockets catching it.

And it doesn't even function, properly.

The fact that they built that edifice to be wholly dependent on A/C when electricity is so expensive here in the VI is mind boggling. Can you imagine the WAPA bills?

I attended the public hearing put on by ACE/ Army Corps of Engineers for Coral World's proposed dolphinarium about a year or more ago and their public meeting room was too small to hold everyone and the A/C system wasn't functioning properly, back then.
It was hot.

The entire design, IMO, is not right for a library in the tropics.
Sad that so much has been spent with more looming to be spent and we don't have a fully operational library.

Our VI tax dollars gone wild and misspent as is usual.

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but THAT library is an architectural nightmare. It looks more like a cheap stateside medical clinic. For that cost we could have had a beautiful grand public building that would have been a community icon for generations to enjoy.

What has happened to our beautiful West Indian Architectural heritage? With the exception of a few 20th century buildings, architecture (especially Public architecture) died when the Danes left!!!
