|In this project we were challenged to define the role of the modern library. The program included a public library, multipurpose rooms, a cafe, and auditorium. The site, located in Champaign, Illinois was at the center of a small business and entertainment district.
My concept for this project was centered on the idea that today's libraries are in a state of transition between the present and future. In order to prepare for this transition, I designed open, adjustable floor plans. I also exposed the inner workings of the building to emphasize a constant state of change.
