Reimagining Bird Library: Presentations by Architecture Students on Potential Future of Bird Library
Students from School of Architecture Professor Randall Korman’s spring 2017 “Integrated Design Studio” (ARC 409) class will present their ideas for a reimagined and redesigned Bird Library at a presentation on Thursday, Nov. 16, from 4 – 5:30 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library.
With Bird Library as a project site, students were asked to adaptively reuse the existing structure—stripped to its skeleton—to serve the needs of an updated and expanded program of functions and services. Students were also required to make their reconceived building a model of sustainability, using active and passive technologies to reduce energy consumption and improve quality of life. Students will share the research materials, drawings and models created for the semester-long project.
The session is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
