This project involved renovation of an existing Library floor (22,000 SF) into a new innovative learning environment for students and faculty. The environment is made up of classrooms and faculty offices with additional "in-between" spaces dedicated for informal interface between faculty and students. The concept developed from a number of "stakeholder workshops" with administrators, faculty and students. The response reflects an effort to enhance communication|collaboration between the administration, faculty and students, through shared ideas, visioning and learning from one another.
