Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library

Jair Lynch is advising the DC Public Library (DCPL) on the renovation of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (Central Library) on the corner of 9th and G streets in downtown DC. This historic structure was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Mies in 1972. Mies is one of the most influential modern architects of the twentieth century. The building is in disrepair and requires an extensive renovation including significant reconfiguration of the interior. Jair Lynch is advising the library on a variety of issues including programming, entitlements, project management, design, procurement and construction.
