Abstract:

In this hypothetical design thesis, Middlebury College is instituting a new pilot project to prepare for a full implementation of new senior work requirements. A “learning library” is to be built on a site in the local community. In this particular project, Finding Biology in Frog Hollow, the learning library is built for Middlebury College biology majors. This facility will be open to all residents of Addison County. Seniors majoring in Biology will apply and hone their knowledge and skills by presenting, demonstrating, tutoring and otherwise engaging with local high school students, retired residents, continuing education adults, and anyone else who cares to learn about the particular subject in this library.
The architecture of this learning library highly focuses and explores the hierarchy, progression and balance between order and chaos found in natural world.
