This project created a modern academic library design that accommodates a variety of learning styles and balances social and communal spaces. The Gordon Library at Worcester Polytechnic Institute was benchmarked and structural alternatives were developed using reinforced concrete and structural steel. The recommendation is to use reinforced concrete in combination with an architectural layout that provides a comfortable environment to facilitate learning through the use of a modern facade, an atrium, natural lighting, mixed-use and open space.
