Olin Renovation Site Visit
The purpose of this project was to identify recent library building projects for the Olin renovation team to visit before the architects start to sketch out Olin design: ?Which libraries should we visit that have recent, renovations/constructions that are user-focused, innovative, that can inform CUL?s design?? Pat Schafer requested this work on behalf of the Olin Renovation Team. This report contains mini profiles for 10 recent building projects: 5 candidates for onsite visits and 5 candidates for ?virtual visits.? Selected sites were chosen based on the following loosely-defined criteria: user-centric focus (most all purported to have a user-centric focus), innovative design features, and apparent similarity to CUL?s user profile and/or renovation scope. A mini-profile for each site is included.
