The renovation of the Engineering and Science Library tranforms the space into a vibrant hub for active learning. With the pervasiveness of digital information and resources, the library continues to evolve as a space that supports information gathering and development. The provision of a variety of seating types for collaborative learning as well as quiet study is fundamental to the program. Enclosed project rooms and a highly flexible Digital Research Center accommodates larger group activities and supports the research of students and faculty. The existing concrete space is enhanced through the introduction of warm wood materials.
