Projects > Libraries
Academic and public libraries are evolving in ways that are increasingly dramatic and complex. As technology has fundamentally revolutionized information access, manipulation, and utilization, this transformation has challenged both librarians and architects to evaluate the implications of these changes and their impact on the core mission of the library, its architecture, and the institutions and communities they serve.
Once seen as quiet repositories of information, libraries are increasingly becoming intellectual and community hubs. A nationally recognized leader of library programming and design, Shepley Bulfinch works with libraries as they face changes to their physical space and operations, positioning them for their expanding and evolving roles in the 21st century.
