Miles Addison Pepper designed rain scuppers for the west side of the library that collect rainwater from the lower roof. When full, they dramatically release the water into landscaped areas below and act as a natural and sustainable irrigation system. Designed to look like oversized ravens' bills, the scuppers add a whimsical touch to a utilitarian building element.
