Building the 21st Century Library

Wed, Feb 10, 2016 | 6:00 pm

Temple University Libraries and the Division of Architecture and Environmental Design at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, present a series of programs exploring the theoretical constructs and material processes behind Temple’s new library building designed by world-renowned architectural firm, Snøhetta. This structure, set to open in the fall of 2018, will be a groundbreaking manifestation of the 21st century library, which catalyzes learning and intellectual engagement; connects people and ideas; and inspires the discovery, creation, preservation, and sharing of knowledge.

Programs begin this spring and run through next fall. This semester we will investigate the culture and theory of design, cultural institutions, and campus planning. Next fall, programs will focus on applied, project-based examples of the design and construction process. Visit library.temple.edu for updates on fall programs.
