The challenge for today’s libraries is relevance. While many are treasured historical or cultural landmarks, a valued community resource, or the iconic centerpiece of a university campus, the future depends on offering transformative environments with a community connection. The new library experience will be content driven not format driven; a place where the community gathers for active civic engagement.
We provide leadership facilitation, strategic planning, and architectural design for municipal and university clients.
It was important to the Board that you understood our need to preserve what we have — this beautiful historic building. What impressed us was that you weren’t afraid to be provocative. You showed us how to preserve an architectural landmark and yet give us a modern library.
