Learning in every space
The intellectual life of academic facilities depends as much on the formal learning areas as it does on the dynamic, vibrant matrix of informal spaces—opportunities for chance encounters and productive discussions. In these, we design spaces for student, faculty, and staff interaction, creating a sense of place that is critical to fostering a strong learning community.
The academic library has always symbolized the intellectual heart of a campus. Its setting articulates the values, aspirations, and mission of the institution. To students, the library is a vital resource—and an important factor in their decision to enroll, but a library must do more than store books to remain relevant in an information- and technology-driven world.
Our designs respond to students’ desires for academic and library spaces that are more socially focused, are more than just an information portal, and can anticipate how they learn, use information, and thrive in an academic community.
