Especially when you're not expecting it when you walk to your car behind the temporary library at night and see it gleaming from the darkness on the other side of a pocket park, with its resident homeless settled in on their benches, and a lone security guard standing watch on the steps.

The people who designed and approved this construction had a vision.
