1989 Pima County Library
Green Valley, Arizona

Architect: Jim Merry & Associates

  

In 1989, Jim Merry & Associates, along with the Friends of the Pima County - Green Valley library, asked Robert to create a facade for a new library to be constructed within their community.

The romanesque portals, with a southwestern slant, sported a totemic desert mural replete with a big horn ram forming the volute at the spring line, and a fish hook barrel cactus in an agave fruit cup below.

 

Diamond chevrons, basket weave and rope twists step reavealed arches into the cool shade of the deep portal within. This project was funded by contributions raised through a bake sale organized by the Friends of the Library.

Cookies and Cakes allowed the gift of a facade to the community and Pima County.
