May, 2018
RAINBOWS AND FURNITURE—Bright pops of color identify the library’s program areas, including a room for gaming studies and a 24-hour learning laboratory with computers and Cintiq interactive displays. The furnishings decorating the building were chosen by students who went to a fair hosted by architect Shepley Bulfinch.
