The Quince Orchard branch of the Gaithersburg Library has an interesting facade – brick, metal and glass, with the metal skin tiled to almost look like scales. the color scheme ranges from brick red to copper and burnt sienna. The yellowish morning light catches it just right, making the whole building glow. The textures are even more interesting.
