Lincoln Center Library & Museum of the Performing Arts

Designed by Gordon Bunshaft, the Library & Museum of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center in New York houses a spectacular collection of 50,000 records, 60,000 musical scores, and more than 50,000 books on the performing arts. The building contains general reading rooms, exhibition space, radio and television studios, conference and rare book rooms, an auditorium, and a children's library and museum.

The Library & Museum shares the same building as the Vivian Beaumont Theater. The entrances to the Library & Museum are supported by giant square concrete columns that form a peristyle around the core of the theater structure, a temple-like pavilion overlooking a reflecting pool with a Henry Moore sculpture.
