Appaloosa Library featured in Metal Architecture magazine
In the February 2010 edition of Metal Architecture, the magazine’s feature story is about the City of Scottsdale’s Appaloosa Branch Library and the building’s color-changing metal skin.
“Designed for its desert location, the library features 20,000 square feet of metal wall panels from Morin that changes colors thanks to the first commercial use in the U.S. of PPG Industries’ Duranar VARICool iridescent coating on the metal cladding. The Kaleidoscope colored coating harmonizes with the color-shifting desert setting.”
