My moment has come – I can finally live the dream of having a lounge chair with my name on it!
That requires a bit of explanation, so I’ll rewind: The Millennium Library’s been a stellar piece of downtown architecture for a decade now, but that gorgeous glass wall at the back has been looking over a construction site. That’s finally coming to an end– the park is getting closer to the book-lover’s paradise seen here.
It can be hard to picture from just these renderings though. So if you head down to the library before August 22nd there’s a MUCH more detailed display there, complete with some of the furniture they’re planning to install. These are not your average park benches – check out the loungers!
That’s where the lounge-chair-with-my-name-on-it comes in. The display is also a chance to help out with the development of the park – all the furniture that’s on display is available for sponsorship, complete with plaques recognizing Winnipeggers who help get more relazing seats, bistro tables, bike racks, and other pieces out there!
