The Library Building Design Award winners were announced on April 19. This year's five recipients were chosen by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Library Association, according to the Library Journal.

Arkansas Studies Institute in Little Rock received the award because its design was based off of a structure of a book, which results in the windows shaped to look like pages and the outside like a book cover. The KAUST Library was recognized because of its light-filtering and translucent design, which is both simple and tranquil, the new source reports.

The other three to win were the Mattapan Branch Library in Boston, the Phoenix Public Library in Phoenix and the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library at Ohio State University.

Prospective architects can expect the job market to increase faster for individuals in this field than other occupations. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for individuals are expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
