Joseph Nicola, Associate Principal and Ben Levi, Associate, will
present the UC Berkeley School of Law Addition during the Tour of Two
New Landmark Libraries - Library Journal Webcast on September 6th.
Use them as prototypes for your next building project or treat them as
think tanks for great design ideas that will support your libraryâ€™s advancement,
the 2012 five New Landmark Libraries represent the best of what academic
libraries are today and provide a glimpse into the library of the future. The
Landmarks, named by a team of 6 expert judges from a national pool, were
profiled in the July 1 issue of Library Journal. They are flexible.
They are green. They reinvent the library as the campus core in support of the
whole student. In this webcast, two architecture firms, moderated by New
Library Landmarks project lead Louise Schaper, will take you into their New
Landmark Libraries. One is a not-to-be-missed stunning legal library whose airy
and light spaces defy the constraints of a small footprint. The otherâ€”a
community college that also serves as the neighborhoodâ€™s public libraryâ€”is chock
full of fresh design and service ideas. The speakers will explore the beauty
and the brains behind these buildingsâ€”what makes them amazing today and
promising for tomorrow; resilient and deeply meaningful to the campus and
community they serve.
