Three study environments social, collaborative, and individual offer opportunities for students of all learning types. By connecting these zones with a flowing interstitial space, the library will transform into a lively learning center.

To see people engaged in learning can be energizing. Consider adjacent areas and how to connect formal and informal learning spaces … Corridors, too, become part of the learning experience when they are active and provide views, as opposed to long, stark, and linear places.


“The space between” provides physical and sensory CONNECTIONS between learning DESTINATIONS, creating a flexible work environment facilitating a depth of LEARNING beyond the traditional classroom setting.
