The 45,000 s.f. renovation and 27,000 s.f addition transform the original library into a vibrant technological and educational resource. providing a flexible and interactive learning environment. The building was constructed with few fixed walls to allow spaces to be reconfigured as programmatic needs evolve.

A 24-hour cafe and computer lab provide space for casual gatherings and give students complete flexibility in their study schedules. Brightly colored interiors, glass-walled group study rooms and a two-story lobby encourage creative collaborative work and foster a sense of intellectual possibility.
