The Fallbrook Library has won the coveted “People’s Choice” Orchid award in the San Diego Architectural Foundation’s annual “Orchid’s and Onions” awards presentation highlighting good (and bad) building design. A judge’s panel picks most of the Orchids and Onions, but online voting determines the People’s Choice award. After receiving multiple nominations, the Fallbrook Library received the most votes from a field of finalists. The brightly-colored library on the corner of South Mission Road and East Alvarado Street opened in January. The building is a celebration of local art, culture and ideas, with sculptures, lithographs, gates, and mosaics by local artists built into its structure. The library is an integral element of Fallbrook’s community vision of having East Alvarado Street serve as an “arts corridor” and is rightfully situated near the Fallbrook Arts Center and School of Arts.
