Abstract:

This thesis addressed three types of "intersections" to contribute to an improved "Middlebury". The first intersection being to merge existing and new architecture to respect the town's vernacular, without forgoing the opportunity to look forward in design. The second intersection is that of program; this library will serve both research-based and experiential learning on both an individual and collaborative scale. These two intersections are meant to encourage the third, which is that of the "town" and the "gown" coming together in the same place within daily life. Middlebury lacks a public space that is truly open and flexible for our climate and our needs. This library serves to address this absence, and to bring together the college and the town for the mutual social- benefits and educational opportunities that increase when we find ourselves in the same place.
