Presentation Title: A Point On The Water: Designing A Library For Middlebury Center

Section: Poster Session Group 1 #21

Location: , Great Hall

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 10:30am - 11:15am


Middlebury's architectural studies thesis class (HARC 730) was presented with the challenge of individually designing "œlearning libraries" for Middlebury center. Each of our libraries focuses on a specific academic major at the college, and serves as a space for collaboration between the town and the college as students work towards completing topical projects. My learning library, situated north of the new bridge between Mr. Ups and the Blossom Basket, offers a gathering space for the environmental studies department and the local community. My design is meant to serve as a hub. College students and community members are led to a meeting space that extends out to a point above Otter Creek. By bringing like-minded individuals into this neutral space, the learning library allows visitors to wrestle with larger issues of sustainability that necessitate collaboration.
