On May 23 2011 the New York Public Library celebrated the 100th anniversary of its landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Pentagram’s Michael Gericke and his team have designed Celebrating 100 Years, the library’s centennial exhibition, a presentation of 250 astonishing artifacts that highlight the collections and history of this remarkable institution.

To showcase the diversity of the collections, the exhibition has been organized into four sections: Observation, artifacts that document the natural world; Contemplation, items that demonstrate a search for meaning through reflection or spirituality; Creativity, items from the library’s collections on the arts; and Society, materials documenting political and social history. These sections are announced with illuminated archways that spotlight the architecture of Gottesman Hall, showcasing it as another of the library’s great treasures.
