219 Loyola: Building a Library for New Orleans

Because of the need to reduce construction costs, several of the original finishes proposed for the Main Library were changed, both inside and outside the building. Hence there is no marble or mosaic tile in the entrance lobby, nor do several other embellishments exist.
