In Plain Sight | Pillsbury Library

You know...that old building at the corner of University and Central. The one over there behind the fence. Yeah, with the arches. No?

Celebrating its 105th birthday in 2008, the Pillsbury Library has spent its recent years not distracting drivers at the stoplight. Thanks to Domain Architecture & Design, however, the new headquarters for the Phillips Foundation is busy getting noticed.

The project was presented a Heritage Preservation Award and it received the first Award for Excellence in Sustainable Design by the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota. Come see it for yourself on Wednesday, November 12th at 5:30pm when owner Dean Phillips leads Preserve Minneapolis on a guided tour.
