Looking for Landmark Academic Libraries

February 29, 2012, 7:09 pm

Library Journal invited me to serve on a panel reviewing “landmark” libraries. Here is the official link.

The core attributes include:

  • design and construction
  • response to campus context and constraints
  • sustainability
  • functionality
  • innovation
  • beauty and delight

This is for new academic library buildings or substantial renovations completed between 2007 and 2011. The deadline to submit is March 20, 2012. If you work in an amazing academic library or if you helped build one — please share it with us.

I have a lot to say about learning environments— but I’m holding off until this competition is over. Where Good Ideas Come From has totally changed the way I think about space, people, and context. I’ll leave it at that for now.
